Knee replacement is considered as one of the best treatments for relieving pain and restoring functions of the knee when all other traditional methods of treatments, such as injections, medicines and weight loss, have failed to provide respite from the severe knee pain.
Arthritis is considered as one of the most common causes of limitation and knee pain. There are three types of arthritis:
Osteoarthritis – It is the most common age-related problems that cause wear and tear of the knee joint. The pain usually occurs in people above fifty years of age where the cartilage cushioning the joint bones can wear away making bones soft. This causes faster and easier attrition of bone with symptoms such as swelling, stiffness, and pain.
Post-traumatic arthritis – This type of arthritis occurs because of a serious knee injury. Ligament tears and fractures can cause damage to the articular cartilage limiting motion and triggering knee pain.
Rheumatoid Arthritis – It is autoimmune inflammatory arthritis in which the synovial membrane surrounding the joints becomes thick and inflamed. This further causes damage to the cartilage and the underlying bone causing deformity, stiffness, pain, and swelling.
In this type of replacement, only the arthritic or damaged part of your knee is replaced. The advantage of this particular approach is that it needs just a smaller incision. Also, there is less blood and bone loss. Also, it causes less pain during recovery compared to total knee replacement.
People who have undergone a partial knee replacement usually have a faster recovery than those who have a total knee replacement. However, there some disadvantages as well, including the possibility that you might have further surgery in case arthritis develops in other parts of the knee that have not been replaced.
In this procedure, both knees are replaced at the same time. An advantage of this kind of procedure is that you only have to undergo this procedure as well as recovery once in case both of your knees are affected.
When it comes to the cost of total knee replacement, it varies and depends on several factors. It depends on where you are undergoing the procedure, fee of the doctor and anesthetist, including other factors. If you have other problems that are not associated with your knees, that might also affect the cost and procedure as well.
It is important for you to understand that along with the cost of the procedure, there are related costs as well, like physical therapy, hospital stay, and medications.
