When a Knee Replacement Might Help

For individuals with severe knee damage, a knee replacement may be necessary. Most patients experience dramatic pain reduction following knee replacement surgery. The most common reasons that you may need knee replacement surgery include:

  • Osteoarthritis, a loss of joint cartilage that limits movement, causes pain and inhibits daily activity
  • Other forms of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis
  • Damage to the knee, such as fractures, torn cartilage and/or torn ligaments
  • Degenerative joint disease

If surgery is your best treatment option, you can be confident knowing our orthopedic surgeons are trained in advanced surgical procedures, including minimally invasive surgical options. These procedures allow surgeons to achieve a greater level of precision compared with traditional open procedures, designed to help you heal as quickly as possible with minimal scarring. After surgery, we offer a comprehensive orthopedic rehabilitation program delivered by our trusted rehabilitation team .
