There is no reason to sacrifice your lifestyle when it comes to your knee pain. When your knees become worn, your everyday movements can be painful and difficult.
You do not have to live with your aching knees. A knee replacement can help you maintain your quality of life. If your life is limited because of knee pain, you may be a candidate for knee replacement surgery.
The best time to think about surgery is when you are having difficulty with the following scenarios: – Your daily living activities: household chores and grocery shopping – Leisure activities: golf, gardening, long walks, bike riding
– Loss of ability to work due to pain – Avoidance of seeing friends or family.
