Knee Replacement Surgery

My Mum is in the Blackrock Clinic recovering from knee replacement surgery - she had the operation on her left knee yesterday. The Clinic is a wonderful modern hospital - very professional. The staff are looking after her very well. I met her surgeon today - a young fella who described the operation to me. He was very happy with Mum's progress. 

I'm fascinated by the mechanics of how the operation works. The following video (by Nucleus Medical Art) shows in an animation how the procedure is carried out. Very simple and mechanical looking, but I'm sure it is a very delicate procedure. 

Many thanks to all in the Blackrock Clinic for looking after my Mum so well.
