Total Knee Replacement
Total knee replacements provide a logical solution for patients with severe knee arthritis. Our multi-modal approach allows our patients to walk on the day of surgery and actively participate with the hospital physical therapists.
Partial Knee Replacement
Patterns of knee arthritis can vary greatly. When x-rays show that the wear is limited only to the medial compartment, and conservative measures are no longer working, Dr. Bryan feels that it is desirable to replace the affected area only.
Conservative Knee Care
Not all patients with arthritis in their knees are ready to move forward with a total or partial knee replacement. There are alternatives to surgery to alleviate pain in an arthritic knee until knee replacement becomes inevitable.
In osteoarthritis, the cartilage in the knee joint gradually wears away. As the cartilage wears away, it becomes frayed and rough, and the protective space between the bones decreases. This can result in bone rubbing on bone, and produce painful bone spurs.
