Total Knee Replacement

Total knee replacement surgery is an operation that involves replacing worn, damaged or diseased knee joints. Replacement surgery is considered if you have swelling, pain and loss of movement that is restricting your everyday activities.

A physiotherapist will often try conservative measures such as pain relieving modalities (massage, electrotherapy, taping or accupuncture) and strengthening the muscles around the knee. If these have failed to give the patient adequate pain relief or enable normal function,  a review with a Orthopaedic Consultant to discuss the possible surgery best for you can be arranged.

The most common surgery is a total knee replacement but some patients only need a unilateral replacement (only one side of the joint).

At East Cliff Therapy we have good connections with the local Orthopaedic Consultants. If needed we can get you an appointment with them (via private consultation) to review your knee within a few weeks.
