Knee replacement surgery. Surgical team stitching a patient's leg after a total knee replacement operation. During the operation prostheses were implanted into the thigh bone (femur) and shinbone (tibia) to form an artificial knee joint. Knee joints need replacing when the protective cartilage that surrounds them is lost.
