Knee replacement surgery — known as knee arthroplasty — may be needed if other treatments for knee conditions or injury have been unsuccessful. Knee arthroplasty is a successful treatment for arthritis, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and conditions that cause knee pain and injury.
We offer three types of knee replacement:
- Total knee replacement: the entire joint of one knee is replaced with artificial parts
- Partial knee replacement: either the inside (medial), outside (lateral), or kneecap (patellofemoral) is replaced
- Bilateral knee replacement: both knees are replaced during a single procedure
