Knee replacement surgery is invasive, costly and often involves a long and often painful recovery! We specialize in non-surgical therapies that help patients get back to the activities that they love.
Alternative to Knee Replacement
Knee replacement surgery or arthroplasty is a surgical procedure to replace damaged bone, cartilage and the knee cap with an artificial joint. Arthroplasty is often used to relieve pain caused by osteoarthritis. The surgery is fairly common and studies show that it has a good success rate. Artificial knees can last as long as 15 years.
But knee replacement surgery is costly and usually requires three to six weeks of recovery time before resuming normal activity. Knee replacement surgery also carries risks such as:
Reactions to anesthesia
Artificial Joints Wear Out
Artificial joints will eventually wear out. Like any mechanical device, the more stress and wear you place on it, the more likely it is to fail or wear down over time. When this happens, people are often faced with repeating the procedure.
