Knee replacements are needed when the cartilage in the joints wears out. Bad knees can be very painful and swollen and can interfere with daily living.
Quad-sparing knee replacement
Quad-sparing knee replacement surgery enables patients to start rehab before you leave the hospital. In fact, therapists have you on your feet within hours after the procedure. Quad-sparing knee replacement surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that does not involve cutting the quadriceps tendon. The technique requires only a 3- to 4-inch incision. The same artificial joint used in conventional knee replacements is fit into place.
