What Is Knee Replacement?

Experience Total Knee Replacement at City Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine

Total knee replacement surgery, also known as total knee arthroplasty, is a transformative procedure to address knee joint damage. When you and your surgeon at City Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine determine that knee surgery is the right path, a comprehensive approach begins. We prioritize your well-being with a meticulous process, including medical assessments, pre-operative physical therapy, and thorough education to ensure your comfort and peace of mind. We understand that every procedure, no matter the size, is a significant event for you and your loved ones.

Our state-of-the-art procedures take place in advanced university-affiliated hospitals. On the day of your surgery, you’ll meet our expert anesthesiologists and pain management specialists. Most procedures employ regional or spinal anesthesia with sedation to ensure your comfort. During the surgery, your skilled surgeon will remove the damaged knee joint’s cartilage, replacing it with high-quality artificial components crafted from metal and plastic. This transformation not only restores your knee’s function but also alleviates the pain associated with knee arthritis.
