Are There Any Alternatives to Knee Surgery?

Depending on your problem, there may well be alternative non-surgical interventions that will help you control your pain and increase mobility in your knee.

These methods are less invasive than surgery and in some cases are less risky, e.g. physical therapy, medications to treat your pain and inflamed joints and using walking aids such as a walking stick or crutch.

If the pain or mobility issues may be made worse by being overweight. Losing weight may help treat the problem.

What are The Risks of Knee Surgery? 

Every surgery carries with it risks. If you are going to be put to sleep by anaesthetic, then there will always be a risk of complication arising from being anesthetised.

The risks vary from surgery to surgery and your own general own physical health so it is always best to consult the surgeon that will carry out the knee surgery for a full assessment of the risks involved.
