Hi, Which knee replacement implant is better for a patient of 60 years of age due to osteoarthritis out of 1) zirconium (oxinium) 2) nickel-cobalt.

Arthritis is very common that you get generally bilaterally. Ice therapy would definitely help to reduce the inflammation. We also advise you to use knee cap which would help to prevent the knee from damaging further and also to maintain the quadriceps muscle tone.
