Knee Replacement Package in Abano Terme, Italy
Knee replacement surgery is typically performed in patients suffering from various forms of arthritis. The intervention consists of replacing the weight-bearing surfaces of the knee joint with artificial, metal components in order to relieve pain and restore mobility. Depending on the severity of the arthritis, the choice can be made to replace the whole knee or only part of it.
Knee replacement procedures
Total knee replacement surgery: The procedure requires the replacement of the damaged cartilage of the knee joint by cutting of a little bit of the bones that make up the joint, and replacing it with an artificial prosthesis. After the prosthesis is set into place it is fixed to the bones using a special cement, and then the muscles and tendons of the knee can be repaired.
Partial knee replacement surgery: This variation of the procedure requires the replacement of only one part of the knee joint. Depending on which part needs replacing, the procedure can be done either on the inside (medial) or on the outside (lateral) part of the knee.
