Knee Replacement

Knee replacement surgery, also referred to as knee arthroplasty is a replacement procedure in which the weight-lifting parts of the knee joints are renewed with implantation of newer artificial parts. The surface removed is then replaced with a metallic one that will serve the same purpose. Patients often run the risk of contracting infections - types 1, 2, 3 and 4.
