Benefits of Total Knee Replacement

Total Knee Replacement is a major surgery and deciding to have it done is a big decision. More than 95% of patients who have knee replacement surgery, experience less pain and greater mobility in their knee after the procedure. Since the diseased cartilage and bones are no longer there after the surgery, there is less or no more pain.

Total Knee Replacement benefits include—
*Increased mobility.
* Reduction in pain, in people who have an injured or arthritic knee joint.
*Better function in patients with severe osteoarthritis, much more effective than non-surgical therapy.
* Restoration of confidence.
*Correction of the deformity.
*Making regular, day to day activities, easier.
*Less need to depend on others, for help.
*Better quality of life.
