TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT
When patients suffer from ongoing knee pain, arthritis or immobility—and non-surgical methods are ineffective—total knee replacement may be the best solution. NJ orthopedic surgeon Dr. Robert A. Kayal, MD performs more than 200 annual joint replacements, and he and his team are experts in both partial and total joint replacement. In addition, Dr. Kayal specializes in minimally invasive knee procedures, which require smaller incisions than traditional surgery. Because of this, there is less tissue trauma and healing is expedited.
What is Total Knee Replacement?
Total knee replacement, also called total knee arthroplasty (TKA), is used to treat traumatic injuries or severe knee osteoarthritis. During the procedure, worn out joint surfaces are resurfaced, and specially made metal and plastic components replace deteriorating bone and cartilage. Minimally invasive surgery accomplishes this through smaller incisions, leading to shortened hospital stays and accelerated rehabilitation.
Your Kayal Orthopaedic Center physician will determine whether you are a candidate for minimally invasive total knee replacement, or whether a traditional approach must be used. In some cases, as when the knee’s structure is compromised, conventional surgery is recommended.
Long-term studies have shown excellent outcomes with total knee arthroplasty, and Kayal Orthopaedic Center patients experience faster rehabilitation and an expedited return to activity. They also enjoy other benefits, including:
- Reduced postoperative discomfort
- Faster healing and less scar tissue
- Renewed joint stability and range of motion
- Faster return to an active lifestyle
