Degenerative arthritis: Degenerative arthritis is an inflammatory disease that occurs when the normal cartilage in the joint is damaged or worn out, deteriorating the space between bones. As the disease progresses, symptoms such as severe pain and swelling, walking disorder or activity restriction occurs, causing challenges in daily life.
Total artificial joint replacement surgery for knee, also called total knee arthroplasty (TKA), is the most effective treatment for patients with terminal stage of arthritis. It is a surgical method to replace damaged knee joint with a specially designed artificial joint to resurface a smooth joint, relieving pain and restoring normal joint function.
