Anatomy

best total knee replacement in West Delhi
  • The knee is made up of the lower end of the thighbone (femur), the upper end of the shinbone (tibia), and the kneecap (patella).
  • The ends of these three bones are covered with articular cartilage, a smooth substance that protects the bones and enables them to move easily within the joint.
  • Large ligaments hold the femur and tibia together and provide stability. The long thigh muscles give the knee strength.
  • Normally, all of these components work in harmony. But disease or injury can disrupt this harmony, resulting in pain, muscle weakness, and reduced function.

The Orthopedic Evaluation

  • An evaluation with an orthopedic surgeon consists of several components:
  • Medical history.Your orthopedic surgeon will gather information about your general health and ask you about the extent of your knee pain and your ability to function.
  • Physical examination.This will assess knee motion, stability, strength, and overall leg alignment.
  • X-rays.These images help to determine the extent of damage and deformity in your knee.
  • Other tests.Occasionally blood tests or advanced imaging, such as a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan, may be needed to determine the condition of the bone and soft tissues of your knee.

  • Your activity program should include:
  • A graduated walking program to slowly increase your mobility, initially in your home and later outside
  • Resuming other normal household activities, such as sitting, standing, and climbing stairs
