Ask the Expert: Do I need a knee replacement?

by admin June 6, 2011

TOI physicians answer common musculoskeletal questions


Question:
Do I need a knee replacement?


Answer:
Knee replacement is an operation that is usually performed for severe knee arthritis. It involves removing the damaged joint surfaces and replacing them with an artificial knee that is not painful. The most important question to ask in determining if you need a knee replacement is “How much is my knee arthritis interfering with my life?” In most cases, we would try every other treatment alternative for your arthritis pain first, including medication, changing your activity level and knee injections. If these do not work, then knee replacement may be an option. Our goal is to make your knee functional and as pain-free as possible so that you can get back to the things you enjoy doing. In severe arthritis, knee replacement may be the best way to accomplish that goal.
