Why Would I Need A Knee Replacement?

It is most common for sufferers of osteoarthritis to be recommended for a joint replacement, as they can often suffer from persistent joint pain affecting their daily life.

A knee replacement is often considered the last option to treat persistent knee pain. Some non-surgical options to treat knee pain may include:

  • losing weight
  • low impact exercise
  • physiotherapy
  • medication

Some Suggested Questions To Ask Your Surgeon While Considering A Joint Replacement:

  • What are some alternative treatments to surgery?
  • What are some possible complications, and how likely are they?
  • How long should I expect my recovery to be?
  • When could I expect to return to normal daily activities such as driving, gym or exercise?
  • What will my rehabilitation journey look like?
  • How much improvement can I expect after a joint replacement?
  • How long does a joint replacement last?

Why Would I Need A Hip Replacement?

If your hip has been damaged by arthritis, a fracture, or other conditions, common activities such as walking or getting in and out of a chair may be painful and difficult. Your hip may be stiff, and it may be hard to put on your shoes and socks. You may even feel uncomfortable while resting.

If medications, changes in your everyday activities, and the use of walking supports do not adequately help your symptoms, you may consider hip replacement surgery. Hip replacement surgery is a safe and effective procedure that can relieve pain, increase motion, and assist you getting back and enjoying everyday activities.

Some common causes of hip pain;

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Post-traumatic arthritis
  • Osteonecrosis
  • Childhood hip disease
