Knee Arthritis

 


Osteoarthritis (OA) is a common problem for many people after middle age. OA is sometimes referred to as degenerative, or wear and tear, arthritis. OA commonly affects the knee joint. In fact, knee OA is the most common cause of disability in the United States. In the past, people were led to believe that nothing could be done for their problem. Now doctors have many ways to treat knee OA so patients have less pain, better movement, and enhanced quality of life.

Total Knee Replacement

 
A total knee replacement is a surgical procedure whereby the diseased knee joint is replaced with artificial material. The knee is a hinge joint which provides motion at the point where the thigh meets the lower leg. The thigh bone (or femur) abuts the large bone of the lower leg (tibia) at the knee joint. During a total knee replacement, the end of the femur bone is removed and replaced with a metal shell. The end of the lower leg bone (tibia) is also removed and replaced with a channeled plastic piece with a metal stem. Depending on the condition of the kneecap portion of the knee joint, a plastic "button" may also be added under the kneecap surface.

  Knee Arthroscopy
 

Knee arthroscopy was developed approximately 20 years ago in both Canada and Europe. Using minimally invasive surgical techniques and fibre optic camera systems, the surgeon can inspect the inside of the knee joint and perform surgery with small instruments. An arthroscopy may be useful in trimming torn menisci following sporting accidents and removing loose fragments of bone.
