Total Knee Replacement Surgery

Total Knee Replacement Surgery (TKR), also known as Knee Arthroplasty in medical terms — is performed on patients to replace the knee joint with artificial material to help relieve pain and restore normal functions of the severely diseased knee joints. TKR replaces the ends of the femur (thigh bone) and tibia (shin or main bone of the lower leg) with plastic or metal inserted between them or with the knee cap (patella). The surgery is performed to bring about relief from pain, improving the knee’s mobility to pursue the daily activities of the individual.

Types Of Knee Replacement Surgeries

Based on the severity of the condition and diagnostic reports obtained (X-ray, MRI) the doctor will decide on performing one of the following surgeries:

Total knee replacement: The surgery involves removal of the surfaces of the thigh bone and lower leg bone (fibula) and replacement of the same with an artificial joint.

High flexion knee replacement: The High flexion knee replacement surgery aims to provide higher flexibility to the patient (a flexion of 155 degrees). The procedure can involve an additional bone resection (approximately 2mm in size).

Partial knee replacement: This is mostly done to remove partially damaged tissue or knee parts. A prosthetic replaces the damaged parts and rest of the knee is preserved. This surgery is usually performed in a laparoscopic method.

Knee cap replacement:  This surgical procedure is performed when the knee cap is partially or totally damaged. The bone is partially or totally replaced with prosthetic parts depending on the severity of the knee cap damage.

Complex (or revision) knee replacement: Revision Knee Replacement surgery is performed to revise any previous knee replacements. The procedure can involve minor adjustments or a total repeat of the earlier surgery.

Prosthetic Implants

The doctor will choose appropriate material of the implant (such as metal, plastic, ceramic, etc) based on the weight, height, age and physical activities carried out by the patient in his daily life. 


The patient’s stay in the hospital depends on the patient’s condition and age. Generally, after the total knee replacement surgery, the patient is kept in the hospital for five to seven days. Within three months, the patient can perform limited knee activities. With the help of physiotherapy, the patient can start doing his normal activities.


After knee replacement surgery, the majority of patients are able to walk properly and independently after 6 to 12 weeks, however each patient’s recovery time may differ depending on their specific health condition and following recovery procedures.

Following the recommended exercise plan and increasing activity levels gradually with physiotherapy, and following doctor’s advise can speed up recovery to regular walking patterns, which results in a simpler adjustment to daily activities and greater mobility overall.

People usually recover from a knee replacement surgery in 6 to 12 weeks, while recovery times can differ depending on a number of factors, including general health and efforts to recover.

Exercises with a physiotherapist’s assistance and following your surgeon’s post-operative care suggestions can significantly improve recovery and lead to better recovery and a better quality of life, even if early discomfort and limited movement are normal.

Yes, most people can climb stairs due to their recovery after knee replacement surgery with physiotherapy and post-operative instructions.

Climbing stairs helps in knee recovery and improves the quality of life after surgery by regaining knee strength, mobility, and function.

The ideal age range for knee replacement surgery is usually between 50 and 80 years old, as it helps to balance the new joint’s long-term durability with the need for a better quality of life.

In order to get the most benefits and maintain the long-term success of the knee replacement, it is important to take individual aspects like pain tolerance, activity constraints, and general health into account when choosing whether to have surgery.

Knee Replacement surgery cost usually ranges between ₹2,50,000 and ₹6,00,000, depending on the type of surgery unilateral or bilateral, hospital, the experience level of the surgeon, the kind of implant, and aftercare.
