The surest way to do away with the growing pain of osteoarthritis (and sometimes the right choice for dealing with a knee injury) is a total knee replacement. If you're understandably concerned about making this decision, you may be surprised to learn how much the field of joint replacement has advanced in recent years.
Modern Joint Surgery for Active Patients Faster Recovery. Better Outcomes.
Replacement joints have improved dramatically in recent times. Whereas they once could be expected to last about ten years, today's artificial joints like the Oxidized Zirconium Ceramic Surface can last twice as long. And, new knee resurfacing procedures preserve the cruciate ligaments and conserve almost half the bone.
Surgical techniques have also improved due to the pioneering efforts of orthopedic surgeons like Dr. Ferro. Not only does he perform hundreds of joint replacements each year, but he also uses 3D modeling to give his patients the most precise fit possible. With new, smooth-functioning knees fitting exactly where they belong, Dr. Ferro's patients tend to recover quickly and enjoy more pain-free activities than they thought possible.
