Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA)
TKA stands for Total Knee Arthroplasty, which is a surgical procedure used to replace a damaged or diseased knee joint with an artificial joint or implant. The procedure is typically performed when other treatments such as medication, physical therapy, or injections no longer provide adequate relief. During a TKA procedure, the damaged bone and cartilage in the knee joint are removed, and the artificial joint is implanted. The goal of TKA is to relieve pain, improve mobility, and restore function to the knee joint.
