Knee Arthroplasty

Knee arthroplasty, also known as total knee replacement, is a surgical procedure that resurfaces an arthritis-affected knee. Metal and plastic components cap the ends of the bones that form the knee joint. An orthopaedic surgeon evaluates your knee's range of motion, stability, and strength to determine if a knee replacement is right for you. Damage can be detected using X-rays.

If medical treatment is ineffective, knee replacement surgery may be an option. Knee replacement surgery is one of the most common bone surgeries in the United States. In the United States, over 600,000 knee replacement procedures are performed each year, with many of them now being performed robotically.
