Knee Replacement

General Information

Living with chronic knee pain is no way to live. The goal of knee replacement, or knee arthroplasty, is to allow you to bend and move your leg without pain and get you back to your normal activities.

At our Joint Replacement Camp, you’ll learn what to expect from every aspect of before, during and after knee replacement surgery. We want you to feel reassured as you go through this journey. Know that you won’t go through it alone, as our providers are committed to your healing.

Repairing damaged knee joints with expertise

Knee replacement surgery is a treatment for severe knee joint damage, usually from infection, injury or arthritis. It involves replacing your damaged knee joint with an artificial one. This procedure may be your best option if you’ve tried other treatments, such as physical therapy, medication, joint injections and less invasive surgeries, without success.

Our board certified, fellowship trained Orthopedic surgeons perform knee replacements at Goshen Hospital. While a total knee joint replacement involves your whole knee, a partial knee replacement removes only one side of the joint. Your surgery may be minimally invasive, which often includes less pain and a faster recovery than open surgery.

While recovering from knee replacement surgery, you’ll spend a few days at the hospital. Physical therapy will be a part of your rehabilitation. For specific patients, we are able to offer outpatient knee replacement as an option. It may take eight to 12 weeks to feel normal again, and full recovery can take up to a year.

At every step, you can rely on the providers at Goshen Orthopedics. Our integrated team is passionate about the well-being and health of our community throughout northern Indiana and southern Michigan.
