At Knee Replacement Surgery Beverly Hills, expert orthopaedic surgeons carry out knee replacement surgery for patients from Los Angeles and it’s surrounding areas.The main reason for any patient having a knee replacement performed is to rid them of their arthritic pain. A knee replacement is an operation to replace the damaged or worn parts of the thigh and shin bones, which form the knee joint, with metal and plastic parts that glide over each other smoothly. During surgery, a single incision is made down the front of the knee. The knee cap is moved to one side so that the joint can be reached. When the joint has been replaced, the incision is closed with stiches or clips. A knee replacement usually takes one to two hours and normally requires a hospital stay of up to five nights. After surgery, physiotherapeutic exercises help patients to recovery. Knee replacement surgery is generally very safe, and for most people the benefits in terms of improved mobility and less discomfort, are greater than the disadvantages.
