Has the pain of arthritis in your knee joint gotten so bad you can no longer function well or perform simple daily activities? Have you tried a knee arthritis treatment program, including a specific arthritis knee exercise routine, but still have no relief?
For many people suffering with the pain of arthritis, knee surgery done with the most advanced minimally invasive surgical techniques, pain management protocolsÂ and rapid rehabilitation program available anywhere in the world is the answer. As a remedy for arthritis, knee surgery is really quite common. In fact, last year it is estimated that some 700,000 Americans underwent this highly successful operation to relieve the pain of an arthritic knee joint. In this procedure the worn articular cartilage is removed from the ends of the femur (thigh bone) and tibia (shin bone) and replaced with a metal cap and plate with a hard plastic bearing between them.
Knee joint replacement surgery is a complex procedure, and Dr. Zehr is one of Southwest Floridas most experienced knee joint replacement surgeons.
