Knee replacement surgery is a safe and effective procedure to relieve the pain associated with an arthritic knee joint. During the surgery, Dr. Wind will remove the diseased or damaged parts of the joint and insert artificial parts, called prostheses or implants.
Knee replacement surgery is an option for patients who have failed to respond to more conservative methods and experience:
- Severe pain that limits your everyday activities including walking, shopping, visiting friends, getting in and out of chair, gardening, etc.
- Pain waking you at night
- Deformity - either bowleg or knock knees
The surgery can help to restore function to joints and relieve pain, allowing you to return to the activities you enjoy.
