Total Knee Replacement Q & A

What is total knee replacement?

Total knee replacement, or total knee arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure that replaces the damaged components of your knee with artificial implants. It’s one of the most successful procedures in all of medicine. 

Am I a good candidate for total knee replacement?

When you visit us at Midwest Center for Joint Replacement for a total knee replacement consultation, you will undergo a thorough exam to determine if you’re a good candidate for the procedure. 

During your exam, our team will X-ray and closely evaluate your knee to assess:

  • Range of motion

  • Strength and stability

  • Extent of knee joint damage

You may be a good candidate for a total knee replacement if you have a knee condition, such as osteoarthritis, that causes severe pain, limits your mobility, and affects more than one knee compartment.

Many people worry about the recovery process, but we are strong believers that doing the right procedure first with our least invasive techniques will provide you with long-lasting pain relief.

Our total knee replacement provides over a 90% satisfaction rate with our patients. Additionally, with our novel, multi-level pain management, and pre- and post-operative protocols developed and practiced right here, total knee replacements can be safely performed in the outpatient environment. 

How long does it take to recover from a total knee replacement?

Recovery time from total knee replacement depends on many factors, including your overall health and wellness. 

In general, most people resume many of their usual activities within 6-8 weeks after a total knee replacement.
