Over 800,000 people have knee replacement surgery each year. Knee replacement surgery has become a common procedure for improving patients' pain, mobility, and quality of life when experiencing chronic knee pain. More than 90% of people with total knee replacement still function well 20 years after surgery. Knee replacement surgery offers active adults the opportunity to enjoy years of bike riding,walking, golfing, and hiking to name a few.
Knee replacement surgery is one of the most successful joint replacement surgeries, with millions of Americans having the surgery each year, significantly improving their lives. Depending on your condition and the type of surgery you undergo, you may be discharged on the same day or after 1-2 days. Two decades after knee replacement surgery, people tend to be more physically active than their peers of the same age with natural knee joints.
With same-day knee replacement surgery, many patients can recover in the privacy and
comfort of their own homes. Thanks to advancements in technology and modern medicine, joint replacement surgeries have become more efficient, effective, and comfortable.
