If joint pain is robbing you of life’s pleasures – taking a walk, playing with children or grandchildren, working in the yard – don’t lose hope! With total knee replacement surgery, you can lead an active life.
Medical technology and techniques have made total knee replacement surgery is one of the most routine and successful surgeries. Learn how your life could benefit from total knee replacement surgery:
Total knee replacement surgery offers a number of benefits:
- Improve your overall quality of life. With less pain and greater mobility, you’ll be able to perform daily tasks and low-impact activities more easily and lead a more comfortable, more independent life. (You’ll still need to avoid high-impact activities that might overload the new knee.)
- Dramatically reduce knee pain. According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), more than 90% of total knee replacement patients experience a dramatic reduction of knee pain. 1
- Improve your range of motion. While your artificial knee won’t be as good as your real knee was in its prime, its range of motion should noticeably increase. Most importantly, it will no longer keep you from living a normal, active life.
- Enjoy years of performance. The most common long-term problem is the gradual loosening of the prosthesis, primarily due to the effects of your weight and activity level. In most cases, the artificial knee can be replaced.
