Thanks for posting your query.
This surgery is generally for people over the age of 50 with severe osteoarthritis.
The procedure has become extremely successful in the elimination of pain due to modern advances in technology and equipment.
people who undergo knee joint replacement surgery have dramatic improvement. This improvement is most notable one month or more after surgery. The pain caused by the damaged joint is relieved when the new gliding surface is constructed during surgery.
Wishing you good health...
