Is Knee Replacement Surgery Right For Me?

People who benefit from total knee replacement 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.

  • The damaged surfaces of the knee are removed along with a small amount of underlying bone.

    This is all performed through an incision on the front of your knee about 15-20cm long. The whole operation takes 45 minutes to an hour and most patients are ready to go home 2-3 days after their surgery.

  • An important factor in deciding whether to have total knee replacement surgery is, understanding what the procedure can and cannot do.

    More than 80% of people who have total knee replacement surgery experience a significant improvement in their symptoms.

    You should get less pain and be able to walk more easily.

    Realistic activities following total knee replacement include unlimited walking, swimming, golf, driving, light hiking, biking, ballroom dancing, and other low-impact sports.

  • Knee replacement surgery is widely performed and is generally a safe operation with excellent results.

    The complication rate following total knee replacement is low. Serious complications occur in fewer than 2% of patients.

    Possible complications are infection, blood clots, bleeding, damage to blood vessels and nerves around the knee, numbness around the scar and leg. The implants can loosen with time and a “re-do” operation may be needed.

    These complications are rare, however, and the vast majority of patients experience excellent pain relief following knee replacement.

    Remember to discuss your concerns thoroughly with your orthopaedic surgeon prior to surgery.
