If you have severe knee pain that has not responded to conservative treatment, you might want to consider knee replacement surgery. Knee arthritis is a common and often age-related condition that can cause pain that progresses from a mild annoyance to debilitating and life-altering discomfort. The board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic knee surgeons at Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic near Jeffersontown, Kentucky, can help you determine if a knee replacement is right for you.

The Gold Standard Treatment for Knee Arthritis

Knee replacement surgery is currently the most common type of joint replacement surgery performed worldwide. Widely considered the gold standard treatment for severe knee arthritis, the procedure offers many well-documented benefits in terms of reduced pain, increased function, and enhanced quality of life. Essentially, it involves removing damaged cartilage and inserting a customized metal/plastic prosthesis in its place.

A knee replacement can be a good option for treating:

  • Osteoarthritis – Due to continual stress, the cartilage that covers the ends of the bones that come together in the knee joint can gradually break down and wear away, leading to painful bone-on-bone contact and stimulating the formation of bone spurs, which can cause joint stiffness.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis – This condition causes the body’s immune system to wrongly target the membrane that lines the knee joint (synovium), leading to pain, inflammation, and degeneration of the joint.
  • Post-traumatic arthritis – Following a traumatic knee injury, such as a fracture or torn ligament, inflammation can develop and potentially affect the alignment of the knee joint, ultimately causing cartilage damage over time.

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

Dr. Richardson is the best! He did shoulder decompression surgery for me many moons ago and has continued to treat me for other shoulder, arm, and back issues since. I would recommend him to anyone!
