Indications you may
need knee surgery.
A consultation with a knee replacement doctor will confirm whether a knee replacement is necessary, but there are several signs that suggest you may need to at least think about this as a treatment option.
- YOU HAVE OSTEOARTHRITIS PAIN
- NONSURGICAL TREATMENTS AREN’T WORKING
- DAILY ACTIVITIES HAVE BECOME DIFFICULT
- YOUR KNEE IS SWOLLEN OR DEFORMED
Types of knee surgery
we specialize in.
Total knee replacement is one of the most successful
orthopedic procedures of all time. Recent advances have
allowed patients to return to work and activities faster than
ever before. Most of Dr. Martin’s patients can return home
within hours of surgery.
For some patients replacing just the worn out portion of their
knee makes more sense than replacing the entire knee. Since
partial knee replacement involves less surgery than total knee
replacement patients can recover even quicker and typically
experience only a few days of pain following surgery.
Some knee replacements develop problems and need to
be replaced. These “reoperation” procedures can be very
complex and ofter require advanced techniques and
equipment. Dr. Firestone and Dr. Martin have extensive
experience with these types of procedures and can help
you decide which is best for you.
