Total Knee Replacement
Almost every athletic activity requires you to bend at the knee. Even everyday activities like taking the stairs, sitting down or walking on uneven ground depend on your knee to function properly and, most importantly, without pain.
Like any joint, your knee will incur damage, degenerate and lose some measure of function over the course of your life. This deterioration can be the result of athletic stress, past injuries or contributing factors like obesity or poor strength. Regardless of the cause, these arthritic conditions—most commonly osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis—in your knee joint can cause severe pain and severely negatively impact your quality of life.
Lifestyle changes such as weight loss, increased strength and improved flexibility have well-documented beneficial effects on overall joint health. There are non-invasive and minimally-invasive methods that can mitigate pain from a degenerative knee, and CSMO can you see you through conservative care options. However, if you have exhausted these means or your knee pain is severe, then total knee replacement surgery with Center for Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic might be right for you.
CSMO offers the area’s only free-standing orthopaedic specialized same-day surgery center. Our physicians and staff have performed hundreds of successful total knee replacement surgeries, each one with an emphasis on scientific excellence and thoughtful patient care.
Same-day total knee replacement surgery allows you to recover in the comfort of your own home and avoid the unnecessary inconvenience and high costs—often thousands of dollars more—of an inpatient hospital visit. Home recovery not only decreases your infection risk, but also gives you immediate control over your postoperative pain and recovery.
