Knee pain affects thousands and thousands of people in the U.S., and knee replacement surgery at the Hughston Clinic in Tennessee may be the answer.
According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, over 650,000 people will have knee replacement surgery this year, and the surgery options available to you have increased substantially since the early days of knee replacement. Knee replacement surgery is a crucial decision for anyone. You want to ensure your knee continues to provide you with the stability and control to maintain your quality of life and reduce the pain associated with osteoarthritis. Conventional knee surgery has changed dramatically with the introduction of robotic knee replacement and robotic-assisted surgery. These procedures give a more precise alignment of your knee, and better outcomes.
Knee replacement surgery replaces your knee bone ends and cartilage with metal and plastic components to replicate your natural knee joint. Alignment and positioning is essential to having a more natural feel to your knee.
