Be Aware of the Risks Associated with Knee Replacement Surgery
By Physicians Rehabilitation
As with any surgery, knee replacement surgery carries risks. There is a chance with knee replacement surgery to experience the following post-surgical complications:
. Blood clots in the leg vein or lungs
. Heart attack
. Nerve damage
. Allergic reactions to anesthesia
. Post-surgical pain
Another risk of knee replacement surgery is failure of the artificial joint. With daily use, even the strongest metal and plastic parts eventually wear out. Joint failure risk is higher if you stress the joint with high-impact activities or excessive weight.
Even if you have tried all other non-surgical treatment methods and your pain continues to limit your activities, viscosupplementation may be an option
In this procedure, a gel-like fluid called hyaluronic acid is injected into the knee joint. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the synovial fluid surrounding joints. It acts as a lubricant to enable bones to move smoothly over each other and as a shock absorber for joint loads.
People with osteoarthritis have a lower-than-normal concentration of hyaluronic acid in their joints. The theory is that adding hyaluronic acid to the arthritic joint will facilitate movement and reduce pain.
