There are various treatment possibilities for knee arthritis. Some will respond to certain treatments better than others as each patient is unique. It is generally best to start with the most conventional treatments. If conventional treatments for arthritis pain does not give the desired result and simple activities such as walking or climbing stairs become hard or unbearable, total knee replacement may be the right option. In this technique, the cartilage and bone surface are dislodged and resurfaced with a metal and plastic implant.

Knee arthroplasty also known as a total knee replacement involves dislodging the impaired portion of the knee and capping the bony surfaces with man-made prosthetic implants. Even though total knee replacements provide excellent results and patient satisfaction, they are characteristically reserved for patients who have tried all other options.

Symptoms for Total Knee Replacement

Listed below are some signs and symptoms to help you determine whether you are a candidate for a total knee replacement.

  • You have knee pain that keeps you awake at night
  • The pain in your knee prevents you from participating in your favorite recreational activities
  • You have knee pain that limits your ability to conduct necessary and daily functions, such as climbing stairs or standing up
  • You have attempted more conservative treatment methods without success

Treatment for Total Knee Replacement

If your knee is severely damaged by arthritis or injury, it may be hard for you to perform simple activities, such as walking or climbing stairs. You may even begin to feel pain while you are sitting or lying down.

If nonsurgical treatments like medications and using walking supports are no longer helpful, you may want to consider total knee replacement surgery. Joint replacement surgery is a safe and effective procedure to relieve pain, correct leg deformity, and help you resume normal activities. Some medical treatments for degenerative joint disease may include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Anti-inflammatory medications
  • Glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate
  • Pain medications
  • Limiting painful activities
  • Assistive devices for walking (such as a cane)
  • Physical therapy
  • Cortisone injections into the knee joint
  • Viscosupplementation injections (to add lubrication into the joint to make joint movement less painful)
  • Weight loss (for obese persons)
