Live in Kearney? Have knee pain? 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. Many patients turn to Dr. Keiser for Kearney Knee Replacement Surgery.
