Knee Cap (Prosthesis) Surgery

Knee cap surgery, also known as knee replacement, is not a treatment method for every patient suffering from knee pain. The reason for this is that the installed knee prostheses have a lifespan. This period is on average and generally 20 or 25 years. Therefore, physicians usually decide on knee replacement surgery for patients over sixty or sixty-five years of age. After the age of 60, the number of patients who think that knee replacement surgery will result in negative results and that surgical operation will adversely affect their lives is also very high. However, this surgical treatment method is applied as an orthopedic method with a very high success rate. Therefore, developments that will positively affect the comfort of life will be provided in this direction. The reasons for the negative results after the knee replacement surgery are generally not doing the exercises given by the physician or similar situations.

Who Can Have Knee Replacement ?

In the knee cap surgery, which is completed upon the application of knee prostheses to the joint surface, the first factor to be considered is the patient’s suitability for the knee replacement operation. In addition, based on the characteristics of the patient, it is determined which prosthesis has the most suitable structure for the patient and the process is completed by conducting a study in this direction. Therefore, we can say that the knee prosthesis is not suitable for everyone and the patient should have various eligibility factors in line with certain criteria.
