Total Knee Replacement

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) 

Norton Joint Care: Education to Empower Your Journey

We understand total knee replacement surgery may sound intimidating. If surgery has been recommended for you, you may have many questions. The Norton Joint Care program includes comprehensive education and rehabilitation components, so you will know what to expect before, during and after surgery. Participation in the program typically results in less pain and a quicker recovery time. Teams of caregivers, including physicians, coaches, nurses, care managers, physical therapists, music therapists and others, are dedicated to helping you return to your full potential with your new joint.
