Knee arthroplasty is a type of surgery where the knee joint is replaced with an artificial one (an endoprosthesis). Metal or plastic prosthetics are used to form the articulation surfaces. This operation is performed when the knee joint is seriously damaged through trauma or inflammations like osteoarthritis. Factors that contribute to the development of this condition include: obesity; injuries from extreme sports or a lack of movement; incorrect walking posture; metabolic diseases.
Rehabilitation after the arthroplasty consists of exercises to reduce swelling, strengthen the active stabilizers, and restore the range of motion. It is advisable to work towards reducing the risk factors.
