The pain of osteoarthritis can be crippling. While injections, physical therapy and medications help many, there are many more who are facing a knee replacement. A knee replacement is considered when non-surgical measures fail to control your pain AND your quality of life is very poor because of the pain you are experiencing. You no longer want to go out walking, you are using a shopping cart as a walker, and you try to minimize the number of times you go up and down the stairs at home due to the miserable pain you experience.
In this knee replacement video, one of our patients shares his experience, his fears and his expectations around his knee replacement episode. Hopefully his experience can help you or someone you know.
