Are you considering knee surgery for knee pain, trouble walking, or osteoarthritis but have some questions? While resting, losing weight, and treating the pain with medications, along with physical therapy, maybe conservative treatment options for your knee pain, some patients will have better results with total knee replacement surgery. At the ORTHOKnox orthopedic clinics in Knoxville, Tennessee, or Athens, Tennessee, you can discuss your options for knee surgery with your doctor, but the top benefits of knee surgery are discussed below!
What are the benefits of knee replacement surgery?
- Pain levels decrease, allowing you to be more active and sleep better. Also, you will no longer need to rely on medication.
- You will be able to get around more easily, which will hopefully encourage you to stay active and improve your overall health and well-being.
- You will be able to return to almost all activities within 3 months of surgery, but with a stronger and more mobile knee.
- You will be more stable, which will reduce your risk of falling and injury.
Are all knee replacement surgeries the same?
In addition to the general benefits of knee replacement surgery, ORTHOKnox offers MAKOplasty®, which has additional benefits including a shorter hospital stay (about 24 hours), minimal blood loss, short surgery time (about 1 hour), and quicker rehabilitation, making it an ideal option for most patients. With MAKOplasty®, your surgeon will use a robotic arm aided by 3D imaging to perform surgery and will be able to preserve as much of your own bone and tissue as possible to achieve a natural feeling replacement.
