Total Knee Replacement

JOI Total Knee Replacement
This procedure restores function to a severely damaged knee due to arthritis. Most commonly, it is used to repair a knee that has been damaged by osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. During the procedure, the surgeon replaces the damaged portions of the knee with artificial parts. These parts consist of a metal femoral component, a metal tibial component and a plastic spacer. A small plastic patellar component may also be used.
