Hello,
Thankyou for approaching Doctorspring.
I have gone through your question and understand that you are asking about the insertion of a spacer of your Total Knee Replacement.
Generally 'spacer' is inserted in presence of some complications like infection.
Please can you give me details if you are having any such problem or anyother complications.
Please reply as a follow up and I will guide you accordingly.

Thankyou
