HOW IT WORKS

An advanced knee replacement solution that makes your knee feel decades younger

Your knee joint is formed by the intersection of the femur (thigh bone), the tibia (shin bone), and the patella (the knee cap). These bones form three “compartments” or sections. In a normal functioning knee, each bone glides smoothly against the other on a layer of cartilage that covers the ends of the bone. In a knee joint affected by osteoarthritis, the smooth cartilage lining on the inside of the joint has worn away.

Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis, affecting tens of millions of people worldwide. It is a degenerative joint disease characterized by the breakdown and eventual loss of joint cartilage. The breakdown and wearing away of cartilage causes the bones to rub together resulting in extreme pain. OA resulting from “wear and tear” is the most common reason individuals need to undergo knee replacement surgery.

What does osteoarthritis feel like? How can you tell if you might be suffering from it? There’s a handful of symptoms that might point in the direction of osteoarthritis. Do you feel pain when: Standing or walking short distances? Climbing up or down stairs? Sitting in or standing up out of chairs? Do you feel any Initial pain and/or stiffness with activities initiated from a sitting position? Do you feel a stiffness in the knee after getting out of bed? Or do you feel a crunching sensation when the knee is used?

 

What can or should be done about this? One option is a total knee replacement. Total knee replacement is a subset of “joint replacement,” which is a procedure in which parts of the diseased knee are replaced with an artificial joint. There’s 600,000 knee replacements done in U.S. each year. Traditional total knee replacement (TKR) has been the gold standard solution for many decades, and makes up the the majority of knee replacements performed today. One reason why is because long-term clinical data is available showing excellent performance and total knee replacement recovery. Also, new techniques, materials and designs have made it a very successful surgery and therefore a good option for many patients. But let’s not mince words: it’s still a major surgery with accompanying surgical and implant performance risks, and significant rehabilitation commitment, so the physician you choose to work with on your total knee replacement can make all the difference to the success or failure of the procedure.

 

Who is a good candidate for total knee replacement? The best candidate is someone who has daily pain that interferes with their normal activities; significant knee stiffness; instability, or buckling, of the knee; or significant deformity caused by osteoarthritis (bowlegs or knock-knees).

"What should I expect after a knee replacement?"

"Correctly-performed surgery by expert medical professionals is the key to everything here"

A typical patient should expect:

  • You will be out of the hospital, to your home, on the same-day of surgery
  • You should be able to weight bear soon after surgery, and walk with an aid at discharge
  • Long-term results of knee surgery depend on your work in rehabilitation
  • By 6 weeks, you should be able to engage in many of your typical daily activities
  • More physical activities, such as sports may take 3 months to be able to do comfortably

Here at Genesis Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, your care and comfort are top priorities for us. So our entire experience is geared around preventing the three leading causes of dissatisfaction for knee replacements, which are: (1) Residual Pain due to improper fit and rotation; (2) Functional Limitations due to altered kinematics and instability; (3) Early Implant Failure due to poor alignment and polyethylene wear. These are most common when non-custom knee implants are used, which is why we always use Conformis, a customized knee implant that matches your unique body structure perfectly using the power of 3D modeling technology. Watch our  total knee replacement video to hear more about patient experiences with this.

Our three-step approach to customized knee replacement

Our work consists of three simple steps: evaluation, treatment, and recovery.


Quick understanding of the nature of your problem

First you book an appointment to determine with our expert medical team what exactly the nature of your knee pain is. With this understanding, we can create a plan of care moving forward, and determine if knee replacement is necessary.

If surgery is necessary, we perform surgery

Post-op recovery is simple and painfree

Our promise to you is that you’ll walk out of surgery on your own two legs, pain-free, with a plan for post-operative physical therapy that will strengthen your knees and facilitate a full total knee replacement recovery

gone for good

Get in touch with us today to book your first appointment to determine the nature of your knee problem and discuss a total knee replacement. We're happy to explain in further detail how the process works and if it might be a good fit for you. (And of course, if surgery isn't the best course of treatment, we'll be the first to recommend an alternative treatment that may be more effective!).
