In this video we learn how to perform knee replacement surgery. The knee joint is accessed with an incision. Then, a number of different surgical tools will be used to perform the procedure. The part of the knee joint is removed first with surgical saws. Then, the artificial joint is put back into the area. Once this part is secured with screws, an insert will be joined in with it to keep it in place. The artificial joint is checked for the last time, then sutures are used to closed the joint. A therapist will work with the patient after surgery to make sure maximum function is returned to the knee.
