What is a knee replacement?

Knee replacement surgery is a surgical procedure that replaces the damaged cartilage and bone in the knee with metal and plastic components. Treatment with knee replacement restores the functionality of the knee and relieves pain, allowing patients to function as before.

Indications for a knee replacement

Several conditions can damage cartilage and bone, including osteoarthritis (wear and tear), rheumatoid arthritis and severe knee injuries caused by an accident. Our specialists carefully assess each individual situation to determine the best treatment option.

Preparing for Operation

The process begins with a comprehensive evaluation, during which our expert physicians review your medical history and current condition. We guide you step by step through the preparation process, including pre-operative exams and lifestyle adjustments to ensure a successful surgery.

The Operation

During surgery, the orthopedic surgeon replaces damaged parts of the knee with the prosthetic components. Our experienced surgeons use advanced techniques (including with robotic surgery) for optimal results and rapid recovery.

Lifetime and Risk
