Knee Replacement Auckland

Knee Replacement Auckland

These days knee surgery is a fairly common procedure especially in cases where arthritis has worn the knee joints badly so that bone is rubbing on bone. Whether you have one or both knees in this condition you will find it difficult to walk without pain. Surgery is the only cure once the knee is irreparably damaged and usually consists of removing the damaged knee joint and replacing it with an artificial joint. While knee replacement is a major surgery, once you have recovered you will find that your life is of much better quality and you will be able to walk more freely.

It is important to follow the doctors’ instructions carefully before and after knee surgery. That way your recovery will be optimised and the risk of damage minimised. We give comprehensive instructions to ensure that our patients know exactly what to expect and the best ways to recover their mobility as soon as possible. To this end, physiotherapy is very important and should be undertaken when scheduled. Pain medication can help you to continue with your exercises so that your knee becomes as good as new.

Of course, not all knee surgery will be complete knee replacement. We also do knee arthroscopy and other procedures on the knee area such as tumour removal in the bone and soft tissue areas of the knee or leg. It is important to seek out treatment by a highly qualified surgeon who has trained in respected hospitals overseas for the best results.
