Knee Replacement

Walking without pain is one of life’s luxuries that we often take for granted. Knee pain is restricting to our movement throughout the day without effective knee pain relief. IBJI is staffed with experienced knee replacement surgeons who are motivated to bringing the luxury of walking comfortably back to their patients. Enjoy the freedom of fluid knee movement and knee stability with IBJI. Let us be your guide back to a fully functioning knee.

Am I a Candidate for Knee Replacement Surgery?

Typically, our orthopedic knee surgeons at IBJI will advise non-surgical alternatives, but occasionally surgery is necessary. Depending on your level of discomfort, it may be time to consider a total knee replacement. The most common reason for undergoing surgery is due to osteoarthritis of the knee. Knee pain and stiffness from osteoarthritis occurs when the bones in the knee begin to rub against one another and cartilage gets worn down.

The joint is replaced with an artificial hinge prosthesis that will imitate the normal function of a healthy knee. Patients can expect to conduct physical therapy exercises as soon as forty-eight hours post-surgery. Normal activity can resume at around four to six weeks after, however full recovery can take up to a few months. IBJI’s knee replacement surgeons specialists will walk you through every step pre and post-surgery to assure your full recovery.
