But well, people who need to move or need to work these are very good candidate for hip replacement. When their problem is very painful that normal…can’t relieve the pain, it is very recommendable that to complete a set of x-rays and sometimes MRI in order to diagnose exactly the grade of arthritis but we can perform different kinds of knee replacements.
We can replace only the tibia component or the femur component with knee cap in both conditions, one of them, we prefer to conserve it in the partial hip replacement, not total. The total replacement is indicated in patients with grade 4 or 5. There is no other option. It replicates completely for the patient to perform all kinds of activities including some of sports activities. ”
