How do you make your surgery a positive and meaningful experience? Many patients and families find it helpful to learn as much as they can before the surgery. Being informed will help you feel confident about your decision to have total knee replacement surgery.
Age, injury or disease can cause knee joints to "wear out," limiting your ability to walk, climb stairs and do activities. If this happens to you, a total knee replacement surgery is one option to consider. This surgery can relieve the pain so that you can again take part in the activities you enjoy.
The Allina Health Total Joint Program helps patients and their families prepare for joint replacement surgery.
To learn more, call the total joint coordinator at the hospital of your choice.
