Knee Replacement Surgery at Garnet Health
A combination of bones, muscles, connective tissues and cartilage cushions allows the knee to flex, extend and twist while supporting your weight. Damage to this complex system of moving parts — whether through injury, disease or ordinary wear and tear — can be extremely painful and greatly reduce your mobility. When knee pain makes it difficult to perform everyday activities such as walking or standing, or if your knee pain persists even while you are sitting or lying down, and is no longer relieved by medication, it may be time to consider joint replacement surgery.
