Knee Replacement Directory

Knee replacement is done to replace a damaged knee joint when a person has trouble doing simple things like walking and when other treatments do not help. Some surgeries can be done using a new method called minimally invasive surgery, which uses a smaller incision. Walking can begin the day after surgery, with minimal assistance needed after about six weeks. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about how knee replacement is performed, what to expect after surgery, recovery recommendations, and much more.
