Total Knee Replacement

Knee injuries can result from twisting, falling, or direct contact. Ligament injuries are common in sports like football, soccer, and basketball. However, knee injuries can occur in many other instances. Surgery is often necessary to regain proper function.

Total Knee Replacement

Total knee replacement can be the proper treatment for a variety of patients with a variety of knee problems. This form of surgery is generally used for patients who suffer with severe pain and the inability to perform normal activities, including both work and play. Pain and stiffness can result from:

  • osteoarthritis and other bone diseases
  • injuries
  • congenital defects
  • anatomical malfunction

Your physician will evaluate your condition to determine if you are a good candidate for total knee replacement. In some cases, physical therapy and exercise therapy may improve your condition without requiring surgery.

The success rate for Total Knee Replacement is 98 -99%. With current techniques and materials, knee replacements will last 15-20 years or longer.

Possible Complications
Serious complications with joint replacement surgery are rare. Medications and instructions are given to minimize the risk of any infection & blood clots. If you experience a high fever (greater than 101 degrees), extreme swelling, redness, or drainage, or extreme pain, let your physician know right away.
