There are four types of TKR Surgery as below:
A Total Knee Replacement is the resurfacing of the ends of the femur, tibia and the patella. The end of the femur (thigh bone) is resurfaced with a metal implant. The knee joint is formed by the connection of three bones: the femur (the thigh bone), the tibia (the shin bone), and the patella (the knee cap). Strong ligaments connect these bones to each other. The muscles of the thigh and calf attach to the bones around the knee by means of tendons. This is because the joint is covered with slippery tissue called cartilage.
When more than one parts of the knee are damaged by injury or arthritis, joint movement suffers. After some time, ligament begins to break or erode. Because totally cartilage can't repair automatic, the injury pain increases. The bones become exposed and rub together. At primary level, your knee may be a little stiff. But as time progresses the grinding bones become painful and limit your ability to walk.
The top of the tibia is resurfaced with a metal plate and the under surface of the patella is resurfaced with plastic. These implants can be attached to the bones with either cement or have a porous surface that allows bone to grow and bond to the metal.
