The term total knee replacement is misleading. The knee is not replaced, but rather an implant is used to re-cap the worn ends of the bone. This is done with a metal alloy on the femur and a plastic spacer on the tibia and patella (kneecap). This creates a new, smooth cushion and a functional joint that can reduce or eliminate pain.
