WHAT IS A KNEE REPLACEMENT? WHEN IS IT NECESSARY?

What is a knee replacement?

Knee pain is a condition that reduces the comfort of daily life and makes it difficult to do daily work. In advanced calcification (osteoarthritis) patients, knee prosthesis may be required in cases where other treatment options are not sufficient to resolve complaints.

Knee prosthesis is the procedure performed to provide patients with calcification in the knee to provide a joint that functions without pain and increases the quality of life of the patients.
When is a knee replacement necessary?

• If the person's knee pain persists despite conservative methods (medication, exercise, etc.)
• If daily activities are restricted due to pain.
• If night sleep is irregular
• If the social life is negatively affected, knee replacement should be considered.
