Knee replacement surgery, also known as arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure to remove a severely impaired knee join and replace it with an artificial joint (metal and plastic parts).

Total knee replacement is a surgical option for patients with arthritis of the knee. This operation can relieve pain and maintain motion in the arthritic knee joint. Arthritis can affect joints, overtime; the smooth cartilage on the surface of the bones wears away. This can result in pain, inflammation, and swelling of the joints. Knee replacement surgery is a procedure to replace this damaged joint to eliminate this pain and swelling for a long time. Arthritis does not have any kind of full treatment; all kinds of medications and procedures are just temporary and can just slow it down. But surgery can be the last (and maybe permanent) solution for this painful problem.
Patients should stop taking certain medications such as Aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements prior to the surgery. They should stop smoking a few weeks before and after the surgery. They should stop drinking and eating around 6 hours before the surgery. Also, they may need additional imaging tests, like X-rays and EKG before the surgery.
