Knee Replacement

Knee ReplacementTotal knee replacement is one of the most successful operations that orthopedic surgeons perform. A total knee replacement is an elective surgery, which means patients elect to have a joint replacement done. As a physician, I never tell patients they have to have their knee replaced. Although the surgery is elective, it is covered by most insurance companies; however, depending on your policy you maybe required to make a small co-payment. My philosophy is to give my patients as much information as possible for them to make informed decisions regarding their health and knee pain and let them tell me how and when I can best help them.

The purpose of this web page is to educate patients about the major aspects of knee replacement surgery. Many studies have shown that an informed patient will have less surprises and be more satisfied with their surgery. I do not intend to scare people away from getting their knee pain treated. Although the following information is a reasonable overview of what I consider the major aspects of knee surgery, it is not a substitute for a clinical consultation where I can directly answer your questions.
