Understanding Knee Replacement Surgery

A physical therapist helps a patient recover after knee replacement surgery.

Knee replacement surgery is a highly effective procedure designed to address severe damage to the knee joint. This damage can result from various conditions, including injuries, fractures, connective tissue disorders, infections, and most commonly, arthritis. Severe arthritis can erode the knee’s cartilage, leading to bone-on-bone friction and excruciating pain.

At Town Center Orthopaedics, we offer comprehensive solutions for knee issues, including partial knee replacements, total knee replacement surgery, and revision knee replacements. Our dedicated team, led by experienced surgeons, is committed to providing personalized care to help you regain your quality of life.

Frequently Asked Questions About Knee Replacement Surgery

What is a knee replacement?

Knee replacement surgery is a procedure that addresses severe damage to your knee joint. Damage to your knee joint can result in severe pain, affecting the way you walk, run, or stand.

The knee is a complex structure that supports your mobility and allows you to bend your leg. Town Center Orthopaedics offers both partial knee replacements and total knee replacements, as well as revision knee replacement.

During surgery, your surgeon replaces the damaged parts of your knee with artificial parts, typically made from plastic and metal.

Why do I need a knee replacement?

Town Center Orthopaedics may suggest this surgery if you suffer from severe pain that hasn’t responded, or no longer responds to conservative treatments. There are several conditions that can cause damage to your knee, including:

  • Injuries
  • Fractures
  • Connective tissue disorders
  • Infections
  • Arthritis

In most cases, severe arthritis is the impetus for a knee replacement. Arthritis can deteriorate the cartilage in your knee, causing bone to rub painfully against bone.

A severely arthritic knee is very painful and can lead to complications like bone spurs—excessive bone developing around the edge of the joint.

If you suffer from a painful knee condition, it can affect your ability to walk, exercise, go to work, or enjoy time with your loved ones. Knee replacement surgery offers long-term pain relief and restores your ability to walk and stand normally.

What happens during the surgery?

During knee replacement surgery, your surgeon places your knee in a bent position to expose the knee joint. After making several incisions, they remove the damaged parts of your knee joint.

Your surgeon then prepares the area for your artificial replacement and positions the parts in place. Your surgeon completes the procedure by ensuring the knee functions properly and closing your incisions. Typically, the procedure takes about two hours.

Sometimes, surgery can be performed with robotic technology. The surgeons at Town Center Orthopaedics can evaluate your knee to determine if you are a candidate for robotic surgery.

What is the typical recovery time?

Every procedure is different, so recovery times vary. Sometimes patients can safely discharge home on the day of surgery. Some patients will require a short hospital stay, typically just one night.. Your surgeon will prescribe pain medication to minimize your discomfort during the recovery period.

Knee replacement surgery requires physical therapy afterward. Physical therapy helps restore your strength and stability, allowing you to gradually increase your activity level and return to your normal routine.

At Town Center Orthopaedics, the surgeons and physical therapists work together to ensure each patient achieves a successful recovery.
