Arthritis of the knee is a common condition causing pain and impaired lifestyle for thousands of people. Fortunately, modern surgical procedures can alleviate this condition. During your total knee surgery, the orthopedic surgeon will replace the damaged knee with metal and plastic components. Knee replacement surgery can help you feel better and move better after your surgery.
Your joints undergo many stresses and strains as you go about your daily activities. When your hip is injured, or a disease such as arthritis develops, the surface cartilage of your hip joint deteriorates. Without this cartilage, the bony surfaces of your joint come into contact, causing pain and difficulty walking. During your total hip replacement surgery, the orthopedic surgeon replaces the ball and socket of your hip with metal and plastic components. As you recover from the surgery, the surgery pain will subside, and your hip will gain strength.
Get back to an active lifestyle
Patients who have total hip or total knee replacements typically recover quickly. You can expect to walk day of surgery. Generally, patients are able to return to driving in 2-4 weeks, dancing in 4-6 weeks and golf in 6-12 weeks. Your total joint team is dedicated to helping you return home and get back to the activities you enjoy.
