Three Alternative Procedures to Knee Replacement Therapy
The knee can sustain extensive damage due to different medical conditions such as osteoarthritis, necrosis, injury or trauma, rheumatoid arthritis and general deformity. If your mobility is compromised due to the joint damage and the pain is excruciating, your doctor may recommend knee replacement surgery. As implied, this is a procedure in which the worn and diseased knee is removed and an artificial alternative is inserted. This process allows mobility to be restored, and it is a long-term solution.
