Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is one of the most successful procedures in modern orthopedic surgery, providing high patient satisfaction rate. As a result, the number of patients undergoing TKA is increasing in number every year and more patients would be inclined to have the operation in near future . The demand for TKA is expected to grow 673% between 2005 and 2030. Knee surgeons are using more advanced techniques of arthroplasty and apply their experience to improve the outcome of the operation and achieving better results.
Understanding of the knee biomechanics , introduction of better techniques together with more modern prosthesis design and instrumentation plus good experience are reasons for success and popularity of this surgery.
In this paper we aim to share our experience of total knee arthroplasty patients with other knee surgeons.
