Total Knee Replacement

When you run out of treatment options for your knee osteoarthritis the time may come for you to have your knee replaced.  This surgery involves removing your knee and replacing it with prosthetic components.  The bottom of your femur, your knee cap, and the top of your tibia will all be cut out.

Some reasons for having your knee replaced are listed below:

  • Severe knee pain while walking or standing
  • Knee pain while resting either or day or night
  • Chronic knee swelling
  • Knee deformity
  • Knee stiffness
  • Failure to obtain pain relief from other treatment options
  • Inability to take medications
