What does the term “total joint replacement” mean?
Total joint replacement means replacing both sides of the surface of a joint. In the knee it means replacing both the thin cartilage surface on the lower joint surface, which is the tibia, and the upper joint surface which is the femur. Also, the joint surface under the kneecap is replaced. This requires removing the thin cartilage surface and a thin surface of bone for replacement with a metal and plastic surface. This allows all movement of the joint to occur between the metal and plastic parts rather than the raw bone often left by arthritis.
