Question about knee replacement surgery...

I'm writing a story in which one of my main characters is a former undercover cop who was shot in the knee during a drug investigation gone bad. Her kneecap was basically decimated. My question is, what kind of materials would a kneecap replacement be made of? Is it just basically plastic? And how long of a time would she have spent in the hospital and in therapy? Would she have problems with the replacement once she has recovered?

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!
