Quick Facts to read about joint replacement

What is Joint Replacement

Knee replacement is a surgical procedure used to treat severely diseased or damaged knee joints. Most knee replacements are the result of knee injuries or severe damage caused by arthritis.

Your doctor typically recommends knee replacement when other treatments like physical therapy or steroid injections fail to relieve your pain. Severely damaged knee joints can cause your bones to rub against each other, causing crippling pain, stiffness, and limited mobility.

The goal of knee replacement surgery is to eliminate your pain and restore the stability of your knee. Knee replacement can be used to replace a portion of your knee joint (unicompartmental replacement) or the entire structure (total knee replacement). At Perimeter Orthopaedics, PC, the team performs knee replacements using cutting-edge robotic techniques.

How is joint replacement performed?

Also known as robot-assisted knee replacement, robotic knee replacement is an orthopedic procedure that allows your doctor to resurface your damaged knee joint through a small incision. Knee joint replacement is performed under spinal or general anesthesia.

During the procedure, your doctor uses a robotic arm to control the precise movements of your surgery. Robotic joint replacement allows your doctor to perform your procedure with a greater degree of precision and consistency than a standard manual knee replacement.

What should I expect after the surgery?

Orthopedic patients have benefited from technological advances such as joint replacement, and the arthroscope that allows the orthopedist to
look inside a joint. But your visit will start with a personal interview and physical examination. This may be followed by diagnostic tests such as blood tests, X-rays, or other tests.
The First 24 Hours After Knee Replacement Surgery

After surgery, the patient will wake up from anesthesia and begin to regain feeling in his or her legs. Doctors will pre-emptively treat pain using a combination of pain-relief methods that complement each other and minimize side effects, an approach that is called multimodal analgesia.

Within 24 hours, if pain is under control, the patient may be asked to stand up and take a few steps with the aid of a physical therapist and/or a walker. Patients who get up and bear some weight (with assistance) on their new knees soon after surgery tend to recover more quickly than patients who do not.
