When you have a knee injury or arthritis, simple
pleasures like walking and shopping can become unbearable. Knee replacement —
either full or partial — can reduce or eliminate pain, allow easier movement
and get you back to your quality of life.
replacement surgery may be considered for people suffering from arthritic knee
pain, or trauma to the knee joint that can severely limit the activities of
daily living. It is only recommended after careful examination and diagnosis of
your particular joint problem, and after conservative measures such as
exercise, physical therapy and medications have proven ineffective.
Total knee replacement is a surgical
procedure where the worn out surfaces of the knee are resurfaced with metal and
plastic components. Over time, the cartilage that cushions the bones can wear
away, cause pain and discomfort, and make simple pleasures like walking and
shopping unbearable. Knee replacement can reduce or eliminate pain, allow
easier movement and get you back to normal life. OrthoColorado Hospital also
offers minimally invasive total knee replacement.
Partial knee replacement is a minimally
invasive surgical procedure that resurfaces the worn, arthritic surfaces of the
knee joint with metal and plastic components. Over time, the cartilage covering
the ends of the femur (thighbone) and tibia (shinbone) can wear away causing pain,
swelling and reduced mobility. If the wear is confined to one area of the knee,
partial knee replacement may be an option.
