Total Knee Replacement
Orthopedist in Wantagh
Severe knee pain is an unfortunate issue many people contend with. Knee pain occurs when cartilage around the knee joint begins to break down causing the bones to rub together. Treatments such as medication, injections, or physical therapy are effective for minor symptoms such as swelling and acute pain; however total knee replacement surgery may be necessary in more severe cases, in order to fully relieve pain and restore full range-of-motion. Consult with an orthopedist in Wantagh at Advanced Orthopedics & Joint Preservation to determine if total knee replacement is right for you.
What is total knee replacement?
This procedure uses metal and high-grade plastic to replace the damaged and deteriorated bone and cartilage surrounding your knee joint. This reduces friction allowing you to regain quality-of-life.
Signs you may need knee replacement surgery
- You are experiencing severe pain that does not allow you to perform normal daily activities.
- You have already tried medication, injection therapy, and physical therapy with fleeting results.
- You have joint stiffness or loss of mobility.
Every patient is different, and surgery may not always be necessary. The experts at Advanced Orthopedics & Joint Preservation in Wantagh will provide you with more information about total knee replacement surgery and if it is right for you.
Which total knee replacement surgery procedure is best?
There are several different types of knee replacement procedures; however traditional ones have been found to be less effective as compared to the latest innovations. At Advanced Orthopedics & Joint Preservation, an orthopedist in Wantagh can offer you the most effective type of total knee replacement – Evolution MP.
Evolution MP is a natural-feeling implant allowing patients to have full range-of-motion. The Evolution MP knee was created to mimic the natural bending, rotating, and twisting of a healthy knee. Traditional knee replacements are ineffective at providing full range-of-motion. The increased movement of the Evolution MP knee results in less sliding, therefore, increasing stability. Not all orthopedists offer this specific type of knee replacement, but Advanced Orthopedics & Joint Preservation with locations in Wantagh, Valley Stream, and Brooklyn provide this form of TKR.
