Knee replacement surgery Abroad

Knee replacement surgery is a procedure which replaces a diseased knee joint with artificial material when medications are no longer helpful. The knee is a hinge joint which provides motion at the point where the thigh meets the lower leg. Knee replacement surgery replaces the lower end of the thigh bone with a metal shell. The upper end of the lower leg bone is also removed and replaced with a channeled plastic piece with a metal stem. A plastic "button" may also be added under the kneecap surface depending on the condition of the kneecap portion of the knee joint.
