Joondalup Patient Information about Total Knee Replacement Surgery
By Dr Daniel Meyerkort, Perth Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine
Total knee replacement surgery is a common and effective treatment for patients suffering from severe knee pain due to degenerative joint diseases. Patients from Joondalup who are considering this procedure should consider Perth Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine with surgery performed at Hollywood Private Hospital
According to recent literature, total knee replacement surgery is associated with significant improvements in pain relief, joint function, and quality of life. Over 90% of patients report satisfaction with their outcome one year after surgery. However, like any surgical procedure, total knee replacement surgery comes with some risks, such as infection, which occurs in about 1-2% of cases, and blood clots, which occur in about 1-5% of cases.
Perth Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine is a highly specialized practice that focuses exclusively on the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. The team of orthopedic surgeons at this clinic has extensive experience in performing complex surgeries such as total knee replacement, and they use the latest surgical techniques and technology to ensure the best possible outcomes for their patients.

It’s important for patients to have a thorough discussion with their orthopedic surgeon about the risks and benefits of total knee replacement surgery before making a decision to undergo the procedure. However, the benefits of total knee replacement surgery typically outweigh the risks for most patients, especially those who have exhausted non-surgical treatment options and are experiencing significant pain and functional limitations.
