Who is a candidate for Total Knee Replacement?

Total knee replacement (TKR), also referred to as total knee arthroplasty (TKA), is a surgical procedure where worn, diseased, or damaged surfaces of a knee are removed and replaced with artificial surfaces. Materials used for resurfacing of the joint are not only strong and durable but also optimal for joint function as they produce little friction.

The goal of total knee replacement surgery is to provide you with a durable solution that can resolve pain, allowing you to stand, sit, walk, and perform other normal activities of daily living.
