Knee Joint Replacement

If arthritis (or injury) has damaged your knee, and different treatments for your pain haven’t helped you get through your everyday activities comfortably, you may be ready to consider knee replacement surgery.

Knee replacement has been proven over four decades to relieve severe knee pain and restore knee function in the vast majority of patients. In fact, the National Institutes of Health recently concluded that knee replacement surgery is “a safe and cost-effective treatment for alleviating pain and restoring function in patients who do not respond to non-surgical therapies.”
