Arthritis of the knee is very commonly seen in our community. Osteoarthritis, inflammatory arthritis (such as rheumatoid arthritis, or post traumatic arthritis often lead to severe pain, stiffness and deformity of a joint.

You will be given time to ask any question regarding the surgery proposed, and be given written literature about knee replacement surgery. If at all unsure about having knee replacement surgery, Dr Jinsiwale would encourage you to make a further appointment to discuss any concerns you may have.
