Once all non-operative treatment options such as activity modification, weight loss, physiotherapy, pain killers, and injection therapy have been exhausted and you are suitable for surgical intervention, I will offer you a either a total knee replacement or partial knee replacement depending on your symptoms and X ray appearances. These are a very successful operations that are routinely performed in patients with knee osteoarthritis.
The benefits of having knee replacement surgery are:
- Reduced pain
- Reduced stiffness
- Increased mobility
- Improved quality of life
The replacement knee joint is made up of a combination of special metals and plastic.
See below for some before and after X-rays of a knee replacement surgery I have performed to treat Osteoarthritis. Drag the sliders to switch between the before and after images.
