Knee replacement, which means knee arthroplasty or total knee replacement, is a surgical process to resurface a knee damaged by arthritis. Metals and plastic parts are used to cap the ends of the bones that form the knee joint, along with the kneecap.

This surgery may be considered for someone who has severe arthritis or a severe knee injury. People who need knee replacement usually have problems walking, and climbing stairs. Some also have knee pain at rest.

Types of joint pain

Common types of joint pain include:

  • knee pain
  • shoulder pain
  • hip pain
  • foot pain, including your ankle and toes
  • hand pain, including your wrist and fingers
  • elbow pain
  • neck pain


A knee replacement (also called knee arthroplasty) might be more accurately termed a knee “resurfacing” because only the surface of the bones are replaced.

There are four basic steps to a knee replacement procedure:

  • Prepare the bone. The damaged cartilage surfaces at the ends of the femur and tibia are removed along with a small amount of underlying bone.
  • Position the metal implants. The removed cartilage and bone is replaced with metal components that recreate the surface of the joint. These metal parts may be cemented or “press-fit” into the bone.
  • Resurface the patella. The undersurface of the patella (kneecap) is cut and resurfaced with a plastic button. Some surgeons do not resurface the patella, depending upon the case.
  • Insert a spacer. A medical-grade plastic spacer is inserted between the metal components to create a smooth gliding surface.
