Knee Replacement

  • 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 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.

    How do you make your surgery a positive and meaningful experience? Many patients and their care circles (family, friends and others close to them) 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 knee replacement surgery.

    This knee replacement section of the website was created to help you prepare for surgery and guide you through your recovery. However, the information is not meant to replace advice you receive from your health care team.
