Partial and Complete Knee Replacement

A knee replacement is recommended for patients with arthritis and certain knee injuries or diseases that have not responded well to conservative treatments such as anti-inflammatory medications or cortisone injections. The replacement devices are designed to relieve pain caused by cartilage damage, and usually last up to 20 years.

Knee Conditions:

  • Anatomy of the Knee
  • ACL Reconstruction | Knee Replacement | Herrin, IL | Carbondale, IL | Harrisburg, IL | Paducah, KYThe knee connects the upper leg bone to the lower leg bone. Cartilage covers the ends of both leg bones and the underside of the patella, or knee cap. When these surfaces are smooth, the joint glides easily and without pain. » Watch the animation

  • Knee Arthritis
  • ACL Reconstruction | Knee Replacement | Herrin, IL | Carbondale, IL | Harrisburg, IL | Paducah, KYArthritis, also called osteoarthritis or degenerative arthritis, involves the swelling and damage of the joints.
