We provide information to help patients and caregivers to understand of knee anatomy, associated symptoms, and joint arthroplasty.

Knee Arthroplasty

> The Knee Joint is composed of four bones; femur, tibia, patellar and fibula. It is a modified hinge type joint. The Knee is the largest joint of our body.

Knee Arthroplasty is intended for patients with painful, disabling joint disease of the knee resulting from non-inflammatory degenerative joint disease (including osteoarthritis, traumatic arthritis or avascular necrosis) or rheumatoid arthritis.

Post-traumatic loss of knee joint configuration and function; moderate varus, valgus, or flexion deformity in which the ligamentous structures can be returned to adequate function and stability, distal femur and/or proximal tibia fractures that unable to stabilize with conventional fracture treatment, correction or revision of unsuccessful osteotomy, arthrodesis, or failure of previous arthroplasty procedure could be treated with Knee Arthroplasty. Patient must consult orthopedic specialist for specific condition diagnosis and treatment.

Some of the contraindications are infection, Sepsis, Osteomyelitis, Osteoporosis, Metabolic disorders which may impair bone formation, osteomalacia, vascular insufficiency, muscular atrophy, neuromuscular disease, incomplete or deficient soft tissue surrounding the knee.

High Tibial Osteotomy Plate

Degenerative arthritis of medial knee joint, injury and congenital disease are corrected by surgery. In moderate varus deformity, the ligamentous structures can be returned to adequate function and stability.

Some of the contraindications are infection, Sepsis, Osteomyelitis, Osteoporosis, Metabolic disorders which may impair bone formation, Osteomalacia, Rapid joint destruction, Vascular insufficiency, muscular atrophy, neuromuscular disease, bony abnormalities preventing safe screw fixation, open wounds, metal sensitivity, patient having inadequate tissue coverage over the operative site, pregnancy and obesity.
