Total Knee Replacement
Total knee replacement surgery can relieve pain and improve mobility.
Diseases like arthritis attack the cartilage that cushions your joints. When the cartilage has deteriorated substantially, a total knee replacement may be the best treatment option.
During total knee replacement surgery, the surgeon removes damaged bone
and replaces it with a joint made of high-tech metal, plastics and
polymers. Factoring your age, activity level and the range of knee
implants available, your surgeon selects an appropriate knee joint and
creates a customized care plan for you.
A custom fit total knee replacement is just what its names suggests,
an artificial knee customized to you. A custom-fit total knee
replacement can provide more predictable results, and many patients
report faster recovery and greater satisfaction.
Pain after knee replacement surgery varies from person to person, but we
are committed to keeping you as comfortable as possible. Throughout
your stay with us, as well as after you are home, we will help control
your discomfort using a variety of techniques and medications.
While each patient is different, the goal is for you to recover in
the comfort of your own home as soon as possible. Improvements in
surgical techniques and post-op care mean that after about 2-3 days, you
will most likely go straight home. However, some patients need to spend
a little longer in a rehabilitation center or care facility before
they're fully ready. Our Joint Care Coordinator works with your care
team to determine what's best for you and helps determine what
additional support is needed for you at home.
