Knee Replacement Surgery

This is a surgical procedure to resurface a knee damaged by arthritis. Metal and plastic parts are used to cap the ends of the bones that form the knee joint, along with the kneecap. The most common reason for knee replacement surgery is to relieve severe pain caused by osteoarthritis. Because people who need knee replacement surgery usually have problems walking, climbing stairs, and getting in and out of chairs. Our surgeon has experience to help increase mobility after surgery.

Knee pain conditions recovery

According to a study published in a journal of the Academy of Medicine of Singapore, 96% of knee replacements performed in Singapore are caused by osteoarthritis. Among these, 4.8% of people who receive total knee replacements are below the age of 50. Therefore the trend is likely to increase. Usually in sporting injuries, one compartment of the knee tends to deteriorate faster than the rest. By using minimally invasive surgery and robotic technology, it is now possible to perform a partial knee replacement that resurfaces only one compartment of the knee. Because of this treatment, most patients are able to return to sports.
