What is a knee replacement?
Many patients present to the ER with debilitating knee pain. This is due to osteoarthritis, or ‘wear and tear’ arthritis. It occurs because the cartilage at the ends of the bone wears away. Over time, bone starts to hit against bone and causes a lot of pain. Eventually, many patients need a knee replacement to deal with pain.
Quick update: I will be switching from a once-a-week to a once-a-month format. Due to your overwhelming support, several projects have come my way. I’ll still be creating simplified patient education information, but you’ll see it in different formats. Stay tuned! And, thank you for your continued support. www.diagnosketch.com
