Understanding the Knee Joint

A. Healthy Knee

  • The thigh bone (femur) and shinbone (tibia) come together to form the knee joint.
  • The knee cap (patella) is the covering that protects the knee joint.
  • The knee joint is lubricated by the synovial fluid made by the joint lining (synovium).
  • Cartilage covers the ends of the knee bones and provides a cushion for the smooth and easy movement of the knee joint.
  • The knee joint has a protective capsule with ligaments inside and outside, offering stability and strength.

B. Damaged Knee

Problems of the knee arise due to the deterioration of the cartilage. It may result in severe pain and you may not be able to walk. The cartilage may be damaged by

  • Traumatic injury.
  • High impact activity (may result in cartilage tearing off)
  • Disease states like – Arthritis, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Genetic factors can also predispose a person to knee problems.

Knee Replacement Surgery Procedure

Total knee replacement is a surgical procedure by which a diseased knee joint is replaced with an artificial knee. Knee replacement surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia. The surgeon will make an incision over the knee and remove the damaged cartilage and bone. Metal and plastic components are then used to cap the ends of the bones that form the knee joint, along with the kneecap.

If you are considering knee replacement surgery in Pune, it’s advisable to consult with an experienced specialist like Dr. Murtaza Adeeb, a renowned knee replacement doctor in Pune at Advanced Bone care Clinic Wanawadi Road Fatimanagar, Pune.

What is Osteoarthritis of Knee Joint Pain?

Degeneration of the underlying bone and joint cartilage (cushion). Arthritis is the most common cause of long-term knee pain and disability.

Common Causes of Knee Arthritis 

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Arthritis following injuries

Typically, osteoarthritis develops after the ages of 50 to 55. Wear and tear and softening of the cartilage occur. The rubbing of the bones against one another results in stiffness and pain in the knees. The illness known as rheumatoid arthritis causes the synovial membrane to thicken and inflame, damaging the cartilage and ultimately leading to pain, stiffness, and loss of cartilage. A serious knee injury, such as a fracture or severe tears to the knee ligaments, may be followed by post-traumatic arthritis.
