Knee replacement and revision
When other treatments are no longer working to relieve your joint pain, you may be considering a knee replacement. We provide partial and total knee replacement options, supported by pre- and post-surgery rehabilitation to return you to your regular lifestyle as quickly as possible.
What is knee replacement surgery?
Knee replacement surgery (also called arthroplasty) is one of the most common bone surgeries in the US. During the surgery, metal and plastic parts are used to cap the ends of the bones that form the knee joint and kneecap. Knee replacement surgeries result in dramatic pain reduction and improvement to mobility.
Why might I need knee replacement surgery?
Osteoarthritis, the breakdown of joint cartilage and bone, is the most common problem that leads to knee replacement surgery. This “wear and tear” joint disease mostly affects middle-aged and older adults.
Other forms of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis and arthritis caused by a knee injury, can also lead to degeneration of your knee joint. Fractures, torn cartilage, or torn ligaments also can lead to permanent damage to your knee joint over time.

How do I know if I need knee replacement surgery?
The specialists at Omaha Orthopedic Clinic will work with you to determine the best treatment for your knee injury. Although surgery is one option, we often recommend non-surgical options as well.
Ask yourself these questions:
- Is your knee pain limiting your normal activity?
- Are you experiencing knee pain while resting during the day or night?
- Have you been using medication for pain relief, but it’s no longer helping?
- Does your knee remain swollen even after rest and medications?
If you answered yes to any of these, let’s meet to discuss your injury and the best treatment for you. Contact us to make an appointment.
