Knee Surgery FAQ

Below is a list of the most frequently asked questions along with their answers. If you have any other questions that you need answered, please ask your surgeon or the care team.

In the knee joint, there is a layer of smooth cartilage on the lower end of the femur (thighbone), the upper end of the tibia (shinbone) and the undersurface of the kneecap (patella). This cartilage serves as a cushion and allows for smooth motion of the knee. Arthritis is a wearing away of this smooth cartilage. Eventually it wears down the bone. Rubbing of bone against bone causes discomfort, swelling and stiffness.
