Couldn't find what you looking for?


1. Is the synovial membrane removed or continued to be used after a total knee replacement?

2. Is the membrane flexible, ie will it stretch?

3. Is it smaller after TKR? (Does the surgery reduce the size of it?)

4. If a part of the membrane were already removed by earlier surgery, could the reduced size cause a restriction in the movement of the joint after TKR?


My TKR produces copious amounts of synovial fluid. The orthopods say nothing can be done and to just live with it. However, I have had over 50 mls removed twice from my TKR and I was pain free for a few days.
