Total knee arthroplasty, also known as knee replacement, may be a viable option for adults with chronic, debilitating knee pain that does not respond to conservative treatment. If you are among this population of patients and are curious about your treatment options, turn to Tampa Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Group, a division of Florida Medical Clinic near Brandon, Florida.
Total knee arthroplasty involves removing damaged bone and cartilage in the knee joint and replacing them with artificial components, known as prostheses or implants, to restore range of motion and reduce pain. At Tampa Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Group, knee replacement procedures are performed by board-certified orthopedic surgeon Dr. Daniel Murphy, who utilizes the innovated Stryker® Triathalon implant system to achieve outstanding results for his patients. These implants feature a single-radius design to improve mobility and reduce post-operative discomfort.
It’s important to note that not every knee pain sufferer is a candidate for total knee arthroplasty. Joint replacement is generally viewed as a last resort after treatments like physical therapy, bracing, regenerative medicine, and arthroscopic procedures have failed to provide sufficient pain relief and an improved quality of life.
