Knee Replacement

The end of your thigh bone (femur) can be compared to a rocking chair. It has two distinct surfaces called condyles, which rest on the shin bone (tibia), forming two ‘compartments’, the inner (or medial) and the outer (or lateral compartment). A third compartment is in the front of the knee behind the knee cap (patello-femoral compartment). The bones in each compartment are covered by a thin layer of cartilage which prevents the bones from touching each other.

Do you still have pain and unable to walk after Knee Surgery?

Both Knee Replacement as well as Knee resurfacing can effectively relieve pain and restore function and provide long term benefit to the patient. However, in a small number of cases, these surgical procedures may fail and require a second surgery called “Revision” surgery.
Some of the common indications for revision surgery include:
 Infection
 Wear and loosening
 Instability
 Stiffness
 Fractures around the knee implant
A failed knee surgery can cause continuous pain and swelling around the knee area; pain and difficulty in bending or straightening the knee; limping while walking; inability to walk well; inability to climb stairs. Patients who have these complaints may require revision joint surgery.
