What happens during the knee joint surgery?

During surgery, you will be lying on your back.

Conclusion of knee surgery

At the end of surgery, the knee is closed up. Muscles are sutured and the wound is closed using sutures or staples. A fixed bandage is applied and a final X-ray image taken to check the exact fit of the knee endoprosthesis. The skin staples or sutures are generally removed after 10 to 20 days.
