A knee replacement surgery (also known as arthroplasty), involves replacing a worn or damaged knee with an artificial joint. More than 70,000 knee replacements are carried out in England and Wales each year, and the elderly is the most common group to undergo knee replacements. Typically, a knee replacement lasts over 20 years, if it is cared for properly. There are two types of knee replacement, either total knee replacement where both sides of your knee joint are replaced or partial knee replacement, in which only one side of your joints is replaced. Common reasons where the surgery is needed are osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, haemophillia, gout or knee injury.
