Do I need a Total Knee Replacement?

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

If you have knee arthritis involving both of the major areas of the knee and you still have pain after conservative care, then the entire joint needs to be resurfaced as a salvage. This provides good pain relief and can correct deformity. You are usually hospitalized for 4-5 days, and 3-6 months of time for rehabilitation is common. I have most people donate 2 units of their own blood to be available after surgery. Depending on your age and health, some time in a rehabilitation facility or home nursing may be needed.
