At Oakland Regional Hospital, advanced surgical solutions include joint replacement of the knee. This is sometimes called knee arthroplasty. Knee replacement relieves pain due to osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and damage to the cartilage. The surgeon removes damaged bone and cartilage from the thighbone, shinbone and kneecap and replaces it with an artificial joint made of metal alloys, high-grade plastics and polymers. Knee replacement relieves pain and allows patients to return to activities with greater freedom of movement.
Your Oakland Regional Hospital orthopaedic surgeon can help you determine if knee replacement is the best option for treatment of your knee pain.
