Total Knee Replacement
What is it?
Total Knee Replacement: If your knee is severely damaged by arthritis or injury, it may be hard for you to perform single everyday activities, such as walking, climbing stairs or getting up and down from a seated position. You may even begin to feel pain while the joint is at rest. If non-surgical treatments fail to improve the pain a joint replacement surgery may be considered known as Total Knee Replacement. Total knee replacements are one of the most successful procedures in all of medicine and more than 600,000 are performed each year in the United States.
This procedure restores function to a severely damaged knee due mostly to arthritis. The damaged knee parts are replaced with artificial parts. Most patients experience significant pain relief and improved mobility of the knee therefore an overall better quality of life. Talk with your doctor about what you can expect and whether a Total Knee Replacement is right for you.
