Knee Replacement Surgery
Knee surgery is the most common type of joint replacement surgery. It’s often referred to as arthroplasty. Your orthopedic surgeon will remove the damaged parts of your knee joint and replace it with strong artificial pieces. Dr. Redish has decades of experience hand-crafting solutions for knee surgery. At Parkridge Bone & Joint, we believe in preserving as much of your natural bone structure as possible. That’s why we’ll always recommend the least disruptive procedure so you can have a fast recovery. Your options include:
- Knee Resurfacing – Only the surfaces of the bones are replaced with metal implants that fit on top of the existing knee bones and are cushioned with a smooth plastic spacer to eliminate bone-on-bone grinding.
- Partial Knee Replacement – If only a few parts of your knee are affected by arthritis, Dr. Redish can use a less invasive technique to exclusively replace the damaged section and leave the healthy parts of your knee joint.
- Total Knee Replacement – In this procedure, Dr. Redish removes all of the damaged bone and cartilage and replaces it with a new joint made of strong metal.
Choosing Knee Replacement Surgery
Although knee pain may come and go at first, eventually it will get worse as your joints continue to wear down with osteoarthritis. You don’t have to suffer in pain — Dr. Redish and the team at Parkridge Bone & Joint can help. We recommend knee surgery if you’re experiencing the following:
- Severe knee pain or stiffness during your everyday activities
- Chronic knee pain while resting
- Frequent inflammation and swelling in your knee
- Deformed knee that bows out from its natural position
If other treatments like anti-inflammatory medications, joint injections or physical therapy haven’t relieved your knee pain, a total knee replacement can be a solution.
Depending on your situation, Dr. Redish will discuss your options for knee replacement surgery and help you choose the best option. He has over 30 years of experience performing total knee replacement and has spent the last 15 years perfecting partial knee replacement techniques. At Parkridge Bone & Joint, our entire care team works together to guide you through the entire process. We’re committed to you , so you can live without joint pain.
