Our legs carry the whole weight of out body whenever we perform any physical activity, generally while standing. The skeletal system of the legs can be divided as Femur (which is also called the thigh bone), Tibia (which is the leg bone) and Patella (which is a knee-cap) that joins the Femur and Tibia with a hinge joint. It is very important that great care be taken for the knee as it provides flexibility to the legs, enabling to perform various activities. There can be injuries caused to the knee resulting in pain and incapability to use the legs for any day to day work. Injuries can be caused by direct blows to the knee cap, but it can also be injured internally if it is stretched or twisted more than the hinge joint is designed to tolerate. When injuries go to the extent of doing a physical damage to the knee-cap or the adjoining bones, then arises a need to go for a Knee Replacement Surgery India.
