Total Knee Replacement

What is a Total knee replacement?

Total Knee Replacement (TKR), also known as knee arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure that involves replacing a damaged or deteriorated knee joint with an artificial implant or prosthesis. This procedure is primarily performed to alleviate chronic pain, restore knee joint function, and improve the overall quality of life in individuals suffering from severe knee conditions.

What are the advantages of Total knee replacement?

Total knee replacement offers several key advantages. Foremost is the substantial reduction or elimination of chronic knee pain associated with conditions like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or traumatic injuries. The procedure enhances knee joint mobility, facilitating daily activities with greater ease and contributing to an improved quality of life. Functional restoration is a significant outcome, as the damaged knee joint is replaced with an artificial one, allowing individuals to walk, climb stairs, and perform various movements without pain. Notably, total knee replacement is associated with long-lasting results, providing relief from knee pain for up to two decades or longer in many cases.

What are the possible risks?

While TKR is generally considered a safe and effective procedure, there are potential risks and complications. These may include infection, blood clots, nerve or blood vessel damage, implant wear or loosening over time, or instability in the replaced knee joint. Risks associated with anaesthesia must also be taken into account.

What happens after?

Recovery following total knee replacement is a staged process. After the surgery, patients typically remain in the hospital for a few days to ensure proper wound healing and manage pain. Physical therapy plays a vital role in restoring knee strength and function. Patients are encouraged to engage in exercises and activities to regain mobility and range of motion. Full recovery and the ability to resume daily activities and even return to low-impact sports can take several months. Following the surgeon's post-operative instructions, including medication, wound care, and rehabilitation, is essential to minimise risks and achieve the best outcome. Total knee replacement often leads to a significant reduction in pain, improved knee function, and an enhanced quality of life.

Our procedures

At Get Well Soon we specialise in elective procedures. Elective surgery is different from urgent or emergency surgery, where the patient’s life might be in danger but
we understand that for many patients, these conditions
an often be debilitating and painful.

Elective procedures are often the sort of operations that the NHS are unable to prioritise, so seeing a doctor privately may be the only way you can have your
condition treated quickly.
