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.
