A Look at Total Knee Replacement

Last updated 3 years ago

The knees are under constant pressure from everyday activities, and they are highly susceptible to damage caused by arthritis, injuries, or aging. Over time, inflammation and pain can become so severe that total knee replacement is the best solution for restoring movement in this complex joint.

Total knee replacement is one of the most successful joint replacement surgeries performed today, and it involves the resurfacing of the bones that meet at the joint. With new parts on the bone ends, the joint can glide smoothly natural motion. Patients do need a fair amount of recovery and physical therapy to live comfortably after knee replacement, but quality of life is often significantly improved once rehabilitation is completed.
