Knee Replacement Surgery

Knoxville’s Best Choice for Knee Replacement Surgery in Eastern Tennessee

Achy knees that haven’t improved with rest, medication, or physical therapy? You may be a candidate for knee replacement surgery. Tennessee Orthopaedic Clinics helps patients in Knoxville and throughout East Tennessee finally, get back on their feet without pain with partial and total knee replacement surgery.

How Knee Replacement Surgery Works

Knee replacement surgery works by removing the damaged parts of the knee joint and replacing them with artificial parts. Depending on whether your surgeon recommends a partial or total knee replacement, some or all of the knee joints may be replaced. Knee replacement parts may include the patella, the ends of the upper and lower leg bones that make up the knee joint, and the interior cartilage of the knee.

What Is The Recovery Time for Knee Replacement Surgery

Recovery time for most knee replacement patients is about six weeks. If your knee feels well enough and you’re no longer taking narcotic painkillers, you can resume activities like driving between three and six weeks after surgery.

What To Expect After Knee Replacement Surgery

Most patients who undergo knee replacement surgery find long-term relief from knee pain and stiffness, as well as a restored range of motion. After the recovery period, patients can go back to most daily activities such as swimming, walking, biking, and playing golf. Some higher-impact sports like skiing, tennis, and other activities that put excessive strain on the knee joint may need to be avoided, even after the recovery period. 

 

Knee replacement parts last 20 years or more. Most patients never need to undergo a second knee replacement operation, especially those that had a total knee replacement surgery.
