Knee Replacement

Mehmet İşyar, M.D. Prof

Knee replacement is a surgical intervention to restore or improve joint function due to serious problems such as pain, damage or arthritis in the knee joint. Knee replacement is the process of replacing damaged or worn natural joint surfaces on the knee joint with artificial implants.

Knee prostheses are generally divided into two main categories: “total knee replacement” (TDP) or “half knee replacement” (unicondylar prosthesis). A total knee replacement replaces all surfaces on the knee joint, while a half knee replacement replaces only the damaged part. The prostheses are made of durable materials such as titanium, ceramic or plastic and have a design that mimics natural joint movements.

Knee replacement surgery can be a preferred option for patients to relieve pain, restore mobility and improve quality of life. This operation is considered an effective treatment method, especially for individuals who have lost mobility due to damage to the knee joint as a result of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, arthritis or severe trauma.

After knee replacement surgery, the physical therapy and rehabilitation process accelerates the patient’s recovery and restores joint function.
