Knee Replacement Surgery

Knee Replacement Surgery

Knee Replacement Surgery is often required for people who suffer from osteoarthritis of the knee for an extended period of time. The goal from this surgery is for the patient to be able to gain range of motion, have less pain and have improved ability with all activities in their lives, especially standing and walking.

The surgery itself involves making an incision on the front of the knee (anywhere from 4-6 inches long) and removing the bone surfaces that are worn and arthritis. A combination of metal and plastic implants are used to replace these areas to function as if there was never any damage to these surfaces. The advancements in technology are allowing these implants to last longer than ever before.
