Fractures can also occur during or following total knee replacement, although they are relatively uncommon. The fracture location will determine the treatment. Surgery is sometimes necessary, including a repeat of the total knee replacement. Bone may also need to be taken from your hip to help with the healing of the fracture. This is called bone grafting. Your doctor will explain the details of this procedure if it is necessary.
