Total Knee Replacement

Continued knee pain and difficulty moving can really affect your life, making everyday things hard to do. If you’ve tried various conservative treatments without success, it might be time to consider a more comprehensive solution. At Hart Orthopedics, our highly skilled orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Jeffery Hart, specializes in total knee replacement surgery. This surgery can help you become more independent and do more things you enjoy.

Understanding Total Knee Replacement Surgery

Total knee replacement surgery, also known as knee arthroplasty, is a procedure designed to alleviate intense knee pain and disability caused by conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or knee injuries. This surgery is recommended when individuals experience ongoing, severe knee pain that hinders daily activities like walking, climbing stairs, or standing for extended periods. Additionally, difficulties in fully moving the knee, persistent pain unresponsive to conventional treatments, and an inability to engage in desired activities may prompt the need for this surgical intervention.

The procedure, typically performed under general anesthesia, involves several key steps. Dr. Hart opens the front of the knee to access the joint, removes damaged cartilage and bone from the femur, tibia, and patella, and precisely positions artificial metal and plastic implants to replicate natural joint surfaces. Following these steps, the incision is closed with sutures or staples.

Post-surgery, a comprehensive rehabilitation program is essential to regain strength, flexibility, and range of motion in the newly replaced knee joint.
