Earlier the knee replacements surgeries were carried out by making large incisions. But our doctors worked quintessentially hard for that and finally came up with the advancement in the procedure which has made it a minimally invasive procedure. The smaller incisions are made for replacing the knee.

Step 1: Shaping the DFB (Distal Femoral Bone)

Once the doctor successfully enters the knee joint, then he aims at placing the customised knee instrumentation at the terminating point of the femur. With this device, it is super-easy to ensure that the bone is getting a cut to match the ideal and the original angles of the legs. With this device, it becomes super easy to cut the deteriorated pieces of the bone and replace them with metal surfaces.

Step 2: Preparation of PTB (Proximal Tibial Bone)

This step ensures that the alignment of the knee comes out to be satisfactory. The effort is to turn the attention towards the lower bone. In this step, the top of the tibia is cut with some distinctive kind of knee instrument.

Step 3: Removal of Patella

In case, the patella is also found to be severely damaged, then it will be intended to get removed.

Step 4: Preparation of the prosthesis

In his step, all the giant preparations for knee replacements are made. Have you guessed? Yes, we are talking about the cutting of the metal prosthesis. It is cut in the way and the dimensions so that it can match the taper. It is with the help of the epoxy cement, that the bone is sought to be attached at the end of the femur.

Step 5: Placing of the Tibial Components

The topmost part of the tibia will have an attachment of the metal tray that will be holding the polyethene spacer. This procedure is super benefitting since if it tends to be getting water out when the rest of the knee is totally in great condition, then it can be replaced.

Step 6: Cementing of the Patella Button

The back portion of the patella is placed with the patella button. The doctor will only make this decision based on the degree of arthritis.

Step 7: Incisions Closing

For effective stitching of the incisions, either nylon or the reabsorbibles stitches are used.
