Knee replacement surgery is a type of procedure used to repair the knee after an injury or the development of severe arthritis. During this procedure, certain implants will be inserted to help restore the knee’s flexibility and stability.
For many patients, knee replacement surgery is only recommended for the following reasons:
- A sudden, traumatic injury, such as a sports injury or fall, has torn the joint of the knee
- Arthritis has gradually deteriorated the knee joint
While sudden injuries are unpredictable, patients with severe arthritis within the knee will often be recommended to go through a series of conservative treatments before knee replacement surgery is considered. At Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic in Carson City, Nevada, we provide conservative treatment for patients to help them avoid knee replacement surgery. While many patients benefit from these practices, some still require surgery. In this situation, we can guide you through the next step of healing by performing your knee replacement surgery at our Carson City clinic.
One of the great benefits of Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic is that our patients can stay with us even after surgery for post-operative rehabilitation. This allows patients to recover from surgery with the same team of doctors who have walked with them throughout their treatment journey.
