In a Total Knee Replacement procedure, the surgeon removes damaged cartilage and bone from the surface of the knee joint and replaces them with metal and plastic implants. In Total Knee Replacement, the surgeon replaces three parts of the knee joint. The two parts of the prosthesis are placed onto the ends of the femur, tibia, and under-surface of the patella using special bone cement.
