Total Knee Replacement (TKR)

Arthritis and certain knee injuries and diseases can damage the cartilage that normally cushions the knee joint, leading to pain and stiffness. A knee replacement may be recommended when more conservative treatments — such as anti-inflammatory medications and cortisone injections — fail to relieve pain or improve movement.

During a total knee replacement, the entire joint is replaced with an artificial prosthesis. The surgery itself lasts between 1-2 hours. After the procedure, patients usually experience immediate relief from joint pain. Physical therapy starts right away to speed healing and to ensure that the patient enjoys full use of the joint. Knee replacements today last about 20 years in 85-90% of patients.

Total knee replacement procedures include:

  • Mobile and fixed bearing
  • Minimally Invasive Solutions (MIS)
  • Quad sparing
  • Gender High Flexion knee
