Knee replacement

When cartilage in the knee becomes damaged from wear, injuries or conditions like arthritis, you may need to undergo knee replacement surgery to relieve pain and restore function. During the procedure, a doctor known as an orthopedic surgeon removes damaged or diseased cartilage and replace it with artificial pieces.

Knee replacement surgeries we offer

Our goal is to minimize your knee pain and restore your body's functionality.


Robot-assisted knee replacement

We offer an advanced surgical system for performing partial and total knee replacement. This robot-assisted technology creates a comprehensive 3D digital model of your knee during surgery, eliminating the need to get a computerized tomography (CT) scan before surgery and reducing your radiation exposure. The model allows your surgeon to carefully study your knee in detail. With a complete view of your unique anatomy, your surgeon is able to perform a more accurate placement of the artificial knee.

This technique optimizes your knee’s range of motion, soft tissue balance and function for a more natural fit and a quicker, smoother recovery. Robot-assisted surgery is minimally invasive, which means a smaller incision, less blood loss and a quicker recovery time.


Knee replacement recovery

Surgery is only a part of your treatment plan in our clinic. In addition to your knee replacement, quality recovery can be achieved through comprehensive physical therapy and rehabilitation. Our surgical and rehab teams collaborate on a plan tailored to your needs and goals. They work with you to develop a recovery strategy while answering any questions you or your family may have.

Typically, your rehabilitation begins the day of surgery with you walking from the stretcher to your bed after leaving the recovery room. After you leave the hospital, your physical therapist may recommend you continue physical therapy either at one of our hospitals or at a location close to your home.

Signs you need a knee replacement

When cartilage in the knee becomes damaged from wear, injuries or conditions like arthritis, you may require knee replacement surgery to relieve your pain and return to normal daily activities.

Do I need a knee replacement?

Your healthcare provider will determine the cause of your knee problems and help determine if you are a good candidate for knee replacement surgery.

You may be a candidate for knee replacement surgery if you:

  • Experience knee pain during physical activity
  • Experience knee pain sitting, climbing stairs or bending down because of pain or discomfort in your knee
  • Have persistent, chronic pain even while resting
  • Have tried other treatments, such as diet, exercise and medications, without successfully relieving your knee pain
  • Wake up during the night because of knee pain
