Knee Replacement: Smooth, Painless Motion
When the knee joint becomes irregular and rough, often from a condition such as osteoarthritis, you’ll likely feel pain with every movement. Sometimes even when you’re sleeping, pain will shoot through your knee. Knee joint replacement is surgery to replace a painful damaged or diseased knee joint with an artificial joint called a prosthesis. If you have knee pain that hasn’t responded to other therapies for six months or more, knee replacement might be right for you.
These days, there is no “right” age to get a joint replacement. Many younger individuals now opt for joint replacement, since the latest generation of technologically advanced implants can last for 25 to 30 years. Patients do not have to wait to regain their active, pain-free lives.
