What is it, and how is it performed?
Total knee replacement (also known as total knee arthroplasty) is a procedure that removes the bone and cartilage of the knee that has been damaged due to arthritis and replaces them with metal and plastic components.
These components mimic the anatomy and function of a healthy knee so that you can return to activities without the pain caused by arthritis.
The procedure is one of the most well-known and most effective in orthopedic surgery because it dramatically decreases knee pain and improves a patient’s quality of life.
The Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeons at OrthoNeuro have performed thousands of total knee replacements and are experts in this procedure using the latest advancements in surgical techniques.
At OrthoNeuro, a total knee replacement can be performed as an outpatient or inpatient procedure based on what you and your OrthoNeuro surgeon determine is best for you.
During the procedure:
The incision is carefully closed to prevent infection and ensure proper healing.
Total procedure time is usually less than 2 hours and physical therapy is typically started on the day of surgery to expedite recovery.
