Knee Prosthesis Surgery
If another treatment smethods do not mend the patient, the doctor resorts to the knee surgery. In the knee prosthesis surgery, an artificial joint, produced of metal and polythene, is replaced with the damaged joint as a result of the corrosion of the three bones in the joint. Today’s medicine is producing the knee prosthesis living up to 25 years and more in the future. Another treatment method can be more feasible for the people between 55 and 65 years old. 65 years and older can apply this method readily.
The surgery takes around 45-90 minutes. Both of the knees can be operated in the same day. The patient can start to walk without any assistance at the end of the 3. week. A month after the surgery, the patient can get back to his normal life literally, without any assistance.
