What to Expect with Partial or Total Knee Replacement Surgery
Partial or Total Knee Replacement surgery involves removing damaged portions of the knee and capping the bony surfaces with man-made prosthetic implants. The surgery repositions the knee into proper alignment and replicates the original function, allowing for a near normal range of motion for the patient.
During a consultation, we will discuss your needs and recommend a technique and prosthetic that is suitable for you and review the procedure including the risks, benefits, recovery and life after the procedure. It is important to remember that a partial or total knee replacement is major surgery. There is always going to be post-operative pain and swelling. Everyone reacts differently to surgery and anaesthetic and recovers differently, but in our experience, the techniques and protocols used by our surgeons and anaesthetists allows for faster rehabilitation to get you back to your old self.
