Knee Replacement Surgery from Orthopedic Specialists in the Louisville, KY, Area

Knee Replacement Louisville KY

Knee replacement surgery may be an appropriate treatment option for adults in the Louisville, Kentucky, area who have severe joint pain that does not respond to more conservative treatments, such as medication and physical therapy. At Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic, our knowledgeable surgeons routinely perform joint replacement surgeries using the latest advances in care. If you have disruptive knee pain, we encourage you to visit one of our offices in the area. One of our physicians can evaluate your condition and suggest ways to enhance your joint health and mobility.

Candidates for knee replacement surgery usually have substantial damage to the knee caused by the erosion of the joint’s cushioning cartilage. During the procedure, a surgeon removes the worn cartilage surfaces on the ends of the femur and tibia bones. From there, the removed surfaces are replaced with implants, or prostheses, that are designed to facilitate normal joint movement. A thin spacer is then inserted between the implants to promote a smooth walking motion. Overall, knee replacement is viewed as a highly effective and advantageous procedure for adults who have tried other treatments without success.

At Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic in the Louisville, KY, area, we understand that the thought of undergoing knee replacement surgery may be overwhelming. That’s why our physicians take the time to carefully outline every step of the treatment and recovery process, and encourage our patients to voice their questions or concerns. Our goal is to provide our patients with a positive treatment experience and help them make confident, informed decisions regarding their joint health.

Contact Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic today to learn more about our approach to knee replacement surgery. One of our associates will be happy to answer your questions and schedule you an appointment at one of our centers in the Louisville, KY, area.

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. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
