Knee Replacement

Total Knee Arthroplasty or “knee replacement” is a very successful surgery for patients with severe osteoarthritis of the knee.   Osteoarthritis is the wearing away of the articular cartilage.  This condition causes increased pain with weight-bearing and activity.  For patients who have failed conservative treatments including prescription medications, injections, and activity modification, knee replacement can restore pain-free function.  Dr. Bushnell can evaluate you to determine if you need a knee replacement or if non-operative treatment may be better for you.
