Knee Arthritis Treatment Options

Knee Arthritis Treatment Options

Postby prescottortho » Thu Dec 28, 2017 11:45 pm

Advanced arthritis of the knee symptoms (pain, stiffness, limited motion, decreased walking and standing tolerance) can gradually worsen to the point where the arthritis interfers with day-to-day activities. For some patients, the symptoms from arthritis can eventually become so significant that they cannot walk or function without severe pain. For patients whose symptoms have reached this point, surgical intervention via joint replacement surgery can return patients to the lifestyle they used to enjoy, typically with minimal or no knee pain.

Total or Partial Knee Replacement

The knee joint itself is divided anatomically into three compartments, the medial compartment, the lateral compartment, and the patello-femoral compartment (knee-cap). Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA)or replacement is recommended when there is significant damage to two or three of the knee compartments, causing disabling pain, deformity and/or limited knee motion. Partial Knee replacement is typically recommended when just the medial or lateral compartment of the knee is damaged.
