Knee Replacement Surgery Performed at Advanced Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine of Houston, TX
Knee replacement surgery may be recommended for people who are experiencing a significant reduction in their quality of life as a result of a chronic condition such as arthritis or a traumatic knee injury such as a compound fracture. At Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, we perform knee replacements for residents of Houston, Texas, and other nearby areas, using today’s latest techniques to improve patient outcomes.
During knee replacement surgery, the damaged portion of the knee joint is removed and the surface of the bone is smoothed over. In a partial replacement, only one part of the knee is operated on; in a total replacement, three separate parts are addressed. Partial knee replacements can be less invasive than total knee replacements for patients who are good candidates for the procedure. A small device is then implanted to replicate the natural shape and structure of the joint and facilitate a normal range of motion.
At Advanced Orthopedics, our Houston facility has a team of board-certified and double-board-certified orthopedists who specialize exclusively in knee surgery. These medical professionals perform knee replacement surgery using both traditional and minimally invasive techniques. The minimally invasive approach is considered in many situations for its ability to provide a number of benefits, such as:
- Better aesthetic outcomes
- Lower complication rates
- Faster healing
Minimally invasive surgeries can also have shorter recovery times than their traditional counterparts. On average, Advanced Orthopaedics’ patients spend just 1.16 days in the hospital after total knee replacement surgery and just 1.02 days in the hospital after a unilateral knee replacement.
If indicated, we can also use a custom knee replacement implant that’s been tailored to the patient’s unique anatomy, leading to a higher degree of comfort and long-term performance. As a result of our individualized care, Advanced Orthopaedics has helped thousands of patients live more comfortable and active lives since our founding in 1983.
