Need thia info for my father. more  

Ms Sen all the makes awailable have nearly the same design. The longevity of knee replacement is dependent more on the correct selection of implant and accuracy of procedure and avoidance of complications.In my long practice I have selected the implant for all my patients and not the patient ,depending on the profile and age God has been kind. more  
Yes-Dr.I do advise what you say,but you agree that the candidate have to really assess him self of his weight/poster -pain etc more  
The knee replacements are done hurriedly-no weight/slender-bending ratio is arrived at.
2.The top weight is always horribly high and can lead structural failures
3.If a bone specialist knows that-L4-L5 creates all problems and knee replacemnet bends-curves the spine at L-4/L-5.
4.Hurry to do such is in younger generation of bone surgeons.
Remedies are-try youa-find weight and slender/bending postures[slowly-and in right direction]
6.Have proper calcium intake and reduction of body weight
and
if necessary go for replacement more
