Knee Pain & Replacement Surgery

Pain in your knee can be a real inconvenience and can stop you living the life you want to lead. You may struggle to do sports, walk any distance or do normal tasks around the house and garden. Deleted sentence. Painkillers and physiotherapy may help in some cases, but if you have long-lasting, more severe, pain you may want to consider a knee replacement operation.

Knee replacement surgery is usually carried out when arthritis has badly affected the knee or the knee has been injured. The cartilage which covers the bony surfaces of the knee joint becomes worn away, which causes pain. The knee may also be visibly swollen.

Your GP is the first person to approach and will advise on whether a knee replacement is suitable. Such surgery normally involves a few days in hospital and a period of recovery at home during which you may need physiotherapy and help around the house.

Many people recover quickly from a knee operation and find they are once again able to do the things they enjoy.
