What is Osteoarthritis and Why Does My Knee Hurt?

Osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis, is a wear and tear condition that destroys the cartilage, sometimes as the result of trauma, repetitive movement, or for no apparent reason at all.

Cartilage is a tissue that covers the end of bones where joints are located and cushions them during movement. When the cartilage wears down it results in painfulbone-on-bone contact that can causeswelling and loss of motion.

Osteoarthritis of one or more joints usually occurs later in life. It can develop quickly over a few months or slowly over years.

What is a Total Knee Replacement?

A Total Knee Replacement is an operation that removes the damaged bone and cartilage from the joint. The damaged bone is replaced with a metal and plastic joint that creates a smoothly functioning  joint.
