Total Knee Replacement Information by Dr. Darren R. Keiser MD
Bellevue’s growth today is primarily due to an expanding economy in the civilian sector. The Kennedy Freeway, a limited-access highway linked to the Interstate Highway System, has stimulated a new building boom. Commercial, industrial, and residential construction are all expanding. During the 1990s, the city’s population grew by 47.5%. Economic and population growth has continued since the turn of the 20th to 21st century.
Bellevue is the site of Fontenelle Forest, 1,400 acres (5.7 km2) of privately owned forestland with 19 miles (31 km) of hiking trails, with views of the Missouri River and the surrounding area. It includes the site of Fontenelle’s Post. Haworth Park at the Missouri River is also a popular tourist attraction, featuring the start of a walking trail that stretches many miles across Bellevue.
The eagerly anticipated Bellevue Medical Center opened on May 17, 2010. The hospital is located at the corner of Highway 370 and 25th Street. Many patients choose Dr. Keiser for Bellevue Knee Replacement Surgery.
Total knee surgery removes the damaged and painful areas of the femur (thigh bone) and tibia (lower leg bone). These areas are then replaced with specially designed metal and polyethylene plastic parts.
Recent advances in knee replacement include the development of special wear resistant components that are intended to enhance the longevity of the knee replacement components.
If your knee is severely damaged by arthritis or injury, it may be hard for you to perform simple activities, such as walking or climbing stairs. You may even begin to feel pain while you are sitting or lying down.
If nonsurgical treatments like medications and using walking supports are no longer helpful, you may want to consider total knee replacement surgery. Joint replacement surgery is a safe and effective procedure to relieve pain, correct leg deformity, and help you resume normal activities.
Knee replacement surgery was first performed in 1968. Since then, improvements in surgical materials and techniques have greatly increased its effectiveness. Total knee replacements are one of the most successful procedures in all of medicine. According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, more than 600,000 knee replacements are performed each year in the United States.
