Caption: Knee replacement. Artwork of a profile view of a prosthetic knee joint. The prostheses are implanted into the thigh bone (femur) and shinbone (tibia). The artificial joint hinges in an identical way to a normal knee joint. Knee joints need replacing when the protective cartilage that surrounds them is lost. Cartilage can be lost due to injury or osteoarthritis.
