How do you do a Total Knee Replacement?

We remove arthritic bone and leftover degenerated cartilage along the surfaces of your bone, only 7-10 mm or so around each surface of the femur (thigh bone) and tibia (shin bone). Personalized sizing is then determined and any bone deformities corrected.

For most patients, Dr. Bremjit uses computer-navigation to customize the cuts specific to each patient’s anatomy. Titanium components are then fixed to your bone with bone cement and a plastic liner is placed in-between. This plastic liner is your “new cartilage”. This provides a friction free, painless surface for you to walk and move your knee around.
