An introduction to the patient’s journey through Total Knee Replacement Surgery at Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. What will happen? When will it happen? And what can you expect from your medical team?

A knee replacement operation is sometimes the only surgical option available to patients with advanced arthritis of the knee.

The knee replacement operation is a surgical procedure aimed at replacing the worn out parts of the arthritic knee with specially designed metal and plastic components. The aim of the procedure is to relieve the knee pain and improve the patient’s mobility.
