KNOW YOUR FACTS
What are the benefits of TKR?
TKR increases mobility, relieves pain and corrects deformity.
When may I benefit from TKR?
If your knee is severely damaged by arthritis or injury, if you find it hard to perform simple daily activities such as walking or climbing stairs, if you feel pained and stiff when you sit or lie down, if you have chronic knee inflammation or swelling that does not improve with rest or medication, if you have knee deformity, or if non surgical treatments such as medications and walking support are no longer working, you may want to consider TKR.
How is TKR done?
TKR is usually conducted under general anaesthesia (where you have no consciousness of the surgery) or regional anaesthesia (where only the lower part of your body is numbed).
A cut is made across the front of your knee, and your kneecap is rotated out of the way so that your knee area is exposed for the surgeon to take out the damaged bones and cartilage, in order to replace them with new implants.
How long does TKR last?
15 years is the average lifespan for 90% of the cases.
What is the recovery timeline like?
With current technology, the average stay in the hospital is 3 to 5 days, and most patients are able to walk without assistance 2 to 4 weeks post-surgery.
Physiotherapy will begin a day or 2 after surgery generally.
It is expected to take 6 weeks or more of rehabilitation before the patient can completely resume his normal activities.
The patient should be able to take up some low-impact activities (such as going on short walks, and bending the knees to 90 degrees slowly) within a couple of weeks.
What are the possible complications from TKR?
The complication rate following knee replacement has been low ever since the procedure has emerged as a mainstream surgery.
According to the American Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS), serious complications occur in less than 2 percent of cases.
Complications reported include wound infection, stiffness, ongoing or new pain, and nerve damage.
