Knee Replacement Surgery
July 19, 2012
Since the first knee replacement surgeries in the 1950s a lot has changed. The equipment used, types of surgeries performed and recovery time have all improved. Norton Healthcare is the only health care system in the region certified by The Joint Commission as an Orthopaedic Center of Excellence. Get Healthy’s Jackie Hays walks us through a total knee replacement procedure that has people back on their feet sooner and with less pain.
Dr. Khalily said most knee replacements last 20 years or longer. As for choosing an orthopaedic specialist, he said Norton Healthcare’s certification by The Joint Commission as an Orthopaedic Center of Excellence makes it a good place to begin searching for the right surgeon.
