How Do I Know If I Need Knee Replacement Surgery?

When your knee pain begins to actually interfere with the activities you need to do or enjoy, it may be time to discuss with your orthopedic surgeon what options you have going forward. Other possible signs and symptoms may include:

  • knee pain that persists,
  • knee pain during and after exercise,
  • you feel decreased knee motion when you bend and extend your leg,
  • your knee is stiff and/or swollen,
  • you have difficulty walking or climbing stairs and loss of sleep due to pain.

Total Knee replacement, also known as Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA), and Partial Knee Replacement are tremendously successful procedures for treating the severe pain and stiffness that often result at the end stage of various forms of arthritis or degenerative joint disease of the knee joint. The primary goal of knee replacement or partial knee replacement surgery is pain relief, along with restoring knee motion, strength and function. Many patients return to the sports activities they enjoy participating in like tennis, golf, biking and yoga.

Orthopedic surgeons generally try to delay Total or Partial Knee Replacement for as long as possible in favor of less invasive treatments. Total Knee replacement or Partial Knee Replacement may be an option when you have exhausted nonsurgical interventions such as anti-inflammatory medications, injections, physical therapy and assistive devices no longer help alleviate the pain. If you have advanced joint disease, Total or Partial Knee Replacement may offer the best chance for relief from pain and a return to normal activities.
