Successful Knee Replacement Surgery

Successful knee replacement traditionally requires a considerable investment of time and energy in rehabilitation following the surgery. Since the beginning of modern knee replacement in the 1960’s there has been a constant improvement in the hardware available to replace the human knee. Post surgery rehabilitation, however, has seen very little change over the years. Rehabilitation begins in the hospital, usually the day after surgery. During this period a strict timetable of exercise, rest, and medication is of paramount importance to the success of the sur­gery.

Considering a Minimally Invasive Knee Replacement

Surgeons continually seek ways to make joint replacements and repairs easier, safer and less arduous for the patient. A number of new techniques are currently under development.

Some surgeons have started performing knee replacement surgery through very small incisions, a procedure called minimally invasive joint replacement. However, minimally invasive procedures are more difficult to perform than standard joint replacements, and researchers don’t yet know whether the long-term results will be as good. In addition, not everyone is a candidate, including individuals who are obese.

Age an Obstacle to Knee Replacement

Some people may worry that they are too old too benefit from having a total knee replacement. Even osteoarthritis patients 75 and older appear to benefit greatly from joint replacement surgery, as a study in the Archives of Internal Medicine has indicated. The research team tracked 174 older patients with severe knee or hip osteoarthritis—average age 75—for 12 months, assessing them at six weeks, six months, and one year. During that time, 29% (47) had joint replacement surgery. Although most of them took several weeks to recover, the long-term results were less pain and disability.

Evaluating Physical Activities After Your Knee Replacement

If you are facing a knee replacement or have already had one, you should talk to your physician about the risks of physical activity, such as a loosening or dislocation of the replacement and the possible need for a repeat surgery (called a Revision). Odds are that a knee replacement won’t get in the way of your tennis game or keep you off the driving range.

A study in the Clinical Journal of Sports Medicine found that activities like biking, bowling, and golf are o.k.

The Pros and Cons of Knee Replacement Surgery

Knee replacement surgery is not without its risks. Complications, such as blood clots and infections, can occur. The good news is that precautions can be taken to control for these potential problems. In addition, the road to recovery can be challenging, particularly with joint replacement surgery. Over 700,000 Americans will undergo this surgery over the next 12 months. So if you go forward with a total or partial knee replacement you are certainly not alone.

Many people who undergo knee replacement surgery experience important decreases in their pain, significant improvements in mental health and quality of their life.

Find Out What Happens During Knee Replacement Surgery

Joint replacement is called arthroplasty. The most common type of arthroplasty is total joint replacement. During knee replacement, the osteoarthritic joint is removed and replaced with an artificial one (a prosthesis) to relieve pain and restore function. Arthroplasty requires hospitalization and, usually, general anesthesia, though in some instances of knee replacement, regional anesthesia (spinal, epidural, or nerve block) may be used to numb the lower body. The surgery usually takes less than two hours. Of course you will not feel any pain during knee replacement.

Female Knee Replacements: Should they be Considered?

Designed specifically to fit a woman’s knee, female knee replacements have been available only for the past 10 or so years. Prior to 2006, when the Gender Solutions knee was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), knee replacements were unisex—designed to fit both men and women.

Female Knee Replacements

However, some surgeons found that women who received conventional knee implants were more likely than men to complain of pain in the front of the knee or tightness and tenderness when they kneeled or squatted.
