Total knee replacement

Ease joint pain so you can become more active again

Cartilage other connective tissue keeps bones in your knee joint from rubbing together and causing pain and stiffness. If the cartilage breaks down because of an injury or diseases, discomfort can cause you to miss out on activities that are an important part of your life.

Problems with the knee joints are common, especially as we age. Knee replacement is a treatment option that can help reduce the pain. The most common reason for a knee replacement is osteoarthritis, a disease caused by deterioration of the joint. If you think you might be a candidate for total knee replacement surgery, take time to watch a recorded webinar about this procedure.
