Procedure For Total Knee Replacement
Our experts begin the procedure by starting an intravenous (IV) line in your hand or arm. Our specialists insert a urinary catheter. If you have excess hair in the surgical area, it will be shaved off. Our anesthesiologist will monitor your blood pressure, breathing, heart rate, and blood oxygen level during the surgery.
Furthermore, our experienced team cleans the skin over the surgical area with an antiseptic solution. We will make an incision in the affected knee. Our experts will remove the knee joint’s damaged surfaces and reverberate the joint with the prosthesis. The knee prosthesis is made up of plastic and metal.
In our practice, we use cemented prostheses instead of an uncemented prosthesis; this is because cemented prosthesis bond to the bone with surgical cement while uncemented prosthesis bonds to the bone with a porous exterior which the bone grows to attach to the prosthesis.
In some cases, we use a combination of the two types to replace a knee. Our specialists close the incision with surgical staples or stitches. Our experienced team places a drain in the incision site to take out fluid. Our specialist applies a dressing or sterile bandage.
