Knee Replacement

What Our Patients Say

Knee replacement surgery, a cornerstone of orthopedic intervention, offers a renewed lease on life for those suffering from debilitating knee conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or severe trauma. At the Knee, Hip, and Shoulder Centre, our commitment to excellence extends beyond surgical expertise to encompass the meticulous selection of implant materials.

Personalized Diagnosis and Assessment :

 Recognizing that “all knees are not the same,” accurate diagnosis and assessment of the extent and type of knee damage are paramount. Advanced imaging techniques, such as MRI or CT scans, coupled with thorough clinical evaluation, enable surgeons to tailor treatment plans to the specific needs of each patient. This personalized approach ensures that knee replacement surgery is recommended only when necessary, maximizing the likelihood of a successful outcome.

Individualized Surgical Planning and Technique:

Acknowledging that “all patients are not the same,” surgeons must tailor the surgical approach and choice of components to each patient’s unique anatomy, lifestyle, and functional goals. Utilizing cutting-edge technology, such as computer-assisted navigation or patient-specific instrumentation, allows for precise planning and execution of the procedure. By customizing the surgical technique and implant selection, surgeons can optimize alignment, stability, and longevity of the artificial joint, laying the foundation for a successful outcome.

Comprehensive Postoperative Rehabilitation:

Recognizing that the “role of the surgeon never ends after surgery,” comprehensive postoperative rehabilitation is essential for optimizing recovery and long-term outcomes. A tailored rehabilitation protocol, supervised by experienced physical therapists, focuses on restoring strength, flexibility, and range of motion in the affected knee. Patient education and support empower individuals to actively participate in their recovery, fostering a sense of ownership and accountability for their health outcomes.

By prioritizing personalized diagnosis, individualized surgical planning, and comprehensive postoperative rehabilitation, healthcare providers can collectively work towards improving outcomes for knee replacement patients. This holistic approach not only enhances the success rates of knee replacement surgery but also promotes patient satisfaction, functional independence, and overall quality of life.


Knee replacement surgery, also known as knee arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace a damaged or worn-out knee joint with an artificial implant, typically made of metal and plastic components.

Candidates for knee replacement surgery are typically individuals suffering from severe knee pain, stiffness, and loss of function due to conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or traumatic injury, who have not found relief from non-surgical treatments.

The recovery process varies for each individual but generally involves a period of physical therapy, pain management, and gradual return to normal activities. Patients typically experience significant improvement in knee function and pain relief within a few weeks to months after surgery.

Risks and complications of knee replacement surgery may include infection, blood clots, nerve or blood vessel damage, stiffness, instability, implant failure, or allergic reactions to anesthesia or implant materials.

The lifespan of a knee replacement implant varies depending on factors such as the patient's age, activity level, implant type, and overall health. However, modern knee replacement implants can typically last 15-20 years or more with proper care and maintenance.
