Knee replacement surgery information and locations

A knee replacement surgery consists on replacing a damaged bone in the knee with artificial materials compatible with your body, which are typically made of metal and plastic. Candidates for this procedure are patients who experience difficulty walking and climbing stairs, resting pain and swelling.
Our doctors will make an incision on the knee, just removing the damaged surfaces of the joint, and replacing them with the prosthesis, which usually consists of three components. Doctors may choose general anesthesia or to just numb the knee, depending on the needs on the patient. Patients usually stay at the hospital between one or three days, and a full recovery might happen between three to six weeks, and might require exercise to strengthen the knee.
