Most probably she is suffering from oa of knee knee surgery-total knee replacement (tkr) is quite safe & gives uniformly good results, in our hands. Surgery should be done when patient is still active & will be able to take benefit of surgery. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem. Kindly show me x rays before a final decision can be taken. She will be thoroughly investigated before surgery is under taken. Risk in surgery is less than the risk in crossing road.
