In brief: Knee replacement

This is typically from the piece of the implant that allows for the smooth movement between the femur and tibial pieces.
If this is painful or you have questions see your surgeon.

In brief: Knee click

The click is caused by metal impacting against plastic, a common finding after total knee replacement.

The clicking may also be coming from scarred or hypertrophic synovium. Also from patellofemoral dysfunction.
