If you have arthritis in your knee, you probably have a hard time walking, climbing stairs or even lying in bed. It may be hard to do the things you want or need to do. To get you back to your normal routine and enjoying life, your doctor may recommend total knee replacement surgery. You are not alone. Every year, more than half a million people have knee replacement surgery.
Over time, your pain should decrease, and your knee function should improve. The surgeon will do the easy part; it's up to you to do the rest - physical therapy and following your surgeon's instructions.
Total Knee Replacement Surgery Options
Norton Orthopedic Care offers several surgical approaches to total knee replacement. These include:
- Minimally invasive (also known as less invasive)
- Accelerated rehabilitation (after surgery)
