Two knee replacements at once: the good and the bad.
So would you like one knee, or two?
It is called bilateral knee replacement. Two knees. At the same time. Usually it is performed by one surgeon; at times it is done simultaneously by two surgeons. And it is a massive trend in knee replacement nowadays.
Doctors are split on their opinions of this surgery.
Some orthopedic surgeons simply will not perform two knee replacements at once, preferring at least a three-month separation between surgeries.
