Knee Replacement Surgery FAQs
When osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis advance to such a degree that you find yourself in constant pain, it may be time for a knee replacement surgery. We may also recommend a replacement if patients experience any of the following symptoms or limitations:
- You’re unable to perform daily tasks without pain
- Swelling in your knees won’t go down
- You can’t enjoy simple activities like walking or standing
- You need to be active for your overall health
Our surgeons are highly skilled, but a little help from a robotic bone and joint assistant can drastically improve surgical outcomes. Contrary to its name, robotic surgery for knee replacements is a collaboration between a human surgeon and a robotic arm. This precise robotic arm eiter assists or completely takes over for human surgeons in several phases of your knee replacement procedure. When a doctor and a robot work together, they’re able to limit the risk of complications or follow-up procedures and drastically reduce your recovery time.
Recovery time varies from person to person but generally takes several weeks to a few months. Most patients can resume light activities within 3-6 weeks, while complete recovery may take up to 3-6 months.
Yes, physical therapy is a crucial part of any joint replacement program and your recovery process. It helps improve strength, flexibility, and mobility in the bones and joint of the replaced knee.
Your knee is durable and capable of handling shifting weight and heavy impacts. Replacements, therefore, are equally engineered to do the job. With metal components made of titanium or cobalt-chromium alloys combined with medical-grade plastics, your knee and joint replacement should last you upwards of 20 years. For most Palmetto Boneone and Joint patients, this will be the only knee replacement surgery they need. To learn more about our knee and joint replacement surgery, call Palmetto Bone & Joint today.
Your surgeon will provide pre-surgery instructions, which may include exercises, dietary restrictions, and medication adjustments. It’s essential to follow these guidelines to optimize your treatment and your outcome.
There is no strict age limit for knee replacement surgery. The decision is based on the patient’s overall health and the severity of their knee condition.
Kneeling can be uncomfortable for some patients. Discuss this with your surgeon, as it may depend on your specific case and the type of prosthesis used for your knee and joint replacements.
In most cases, knee replacement surgery is covered by health insurance, but you should check with your insurance provider to understand your specific coverage and any associated costs.
