If the cartilage between two major bones of a leg is totally damaged, then there is no option other than surgery; provided general physical condition permits. Ayurveda has part of panchakarma to relieve arthritis pain & it need to be periodically done. This option is applicable after seeing the X-ray/ MRI reports
Next Steps
Take Ayurvedic doctors opinion , not home remedies for arthritis.
Health Tips
Certain knee exercises should be done regularly

Knee replacement should be the last resort.
You should try ayurveda before going for that.
Ayurveda will prevent arthritis from further deterioration and will help in pain management.

Knee surgery is suggested for osteoarthritis. We have to know the history and degree of degeneration to determine whether surgery is advisable. Coming to ayurveda we have various treatments for osteoarthritis like Janu vasti( oil retention in knee), abhyangam(ayurveda medicated massage), kizhi( hot fomentation).nadi diagnosis and proper consultation are necessary.
