Do I Need Total Knee Replacement?

Knee replacement surgery, also known as knee arthroplasty, is a procedure that is commonly performed to remove and replace a joint that has been damaged due to arthritis or trauma with an artificial joint to provide pain relief and restore range of motion.

Many knee replacement surgeries are performed in order to treat severe osteoarthritis, however, rheumatoid arthritis and traumatic injury to the knee may also result in the need for replacement, but only after more conservative treatment options have failed to provide relief and restore the use of the knee.

Knee replacement surgery is one of the most successful orthopedic joint replacement procedures performed in the U.S. each year and is the most common type of joint replacement performed at Texas Ortho Center.
