Is Knee Replacement Surgery Right For Me?
People who benefit from knee replacement surgery often have:
Moderate or severe knee pain while resting, either day or night
Difficulty walking more than a few minutes without significant pain
Chronic knee inflammation and swelling that does not improve with rest or medications
Knee deformity — a bowing in or out of your knee
No improvement with other treatments such as anti-inflammatory medications, cortisone injections, lubricating injections, physical therapy, or other surgeries.
