Total Knee Replacement

Total knee replacement is a surgery to replace worn or damaged parts of the knee joint. The surface of the diseased joint are removed and replaced with an artificial joint. This surgery can relieve pain and improve movement in your knee joint.

You may need a total knee replacement if:

  • Other treatments such as medicine, steroid injections and physical therapy, no longer stop your pain or help movement of the joint.
  • The pain or poor movement in your knee prevents you from doing your normal activities.

During surgery, the damaged cartilage and ends of the bones of the knee joint are removed. A new joint is created using an artificial joint made of metal and very strong plastic. Parts of the new joint may be cemented in place with special bone cement. The metal has a porous surface that your bone will grow into as it heals to create a tight fit.

The staff will help you stand and begin walking with a walker the day of or day after surgery. You will have some pain as the tissues heal and muscles regain their strength. This pain shoud go away in a few weeks and pain medicine wil be ordered to help relieve this surgery pain. With your new joint and physical therapy, you may be able to resume some of the activities you once enjoyed.

Consult our doctor or nurse if you have any question or concerns about Total Knee Replacement.
