Total Knee Replacement Surgery

USC Orthopaedic Surgery / Treatments / Total Knee Replacement Surgery

A total knee replacement is recommended for patients whose knees have been damaged from arthritis, osteonecrosis or trauma when nonsurgical approaches such as rest, medication, and physical therapy are no longer helpful.

Knee replacement involves removing damaged cartilage and releasing tightened ligaments, then implanting prosthetic components securely into place.
