In case of knee arthritis, knee replacement surgery is warranted when the quality of life of the patient is affected. The total knee replacement surgery involves the implantation of artificial prosthetic parts as a replacement of the damaged knee joint.
This type of prosthetic knee helps restore mobility of the knee and even reduce pain from the area. If the joint area between both knees is damaged, then a bilateral total knee replacement surgery is required. It should be known that double knee replacement surgery may require one surgery or two surgeries, depending on whether both the knees are operated upon at the same time or separately.
In case separate surgeries are conducted, an interval of a few months is taken before conducting surgery for the second knee. This is because by the time second surgery is conducted, the first knee has already recovered from replacement surgery. This helps reduce any kind of complications. The entire procedure requires minimal hospital stay.
Some of risks involved in bilateral total knee replacement surgery include infection, stroke, blood clots, heart attacks, failure of artificial joints and nerve damage. People aged above 65 years are likely to face more complications. On the other hand, the younger lot can recover faster.
