Knee Replacement Surgery for Patients in Hampton, Williamsburg, Newport News, VA, and throughout Hampton Roads
Knee replacement surgery has represented a major step toward finding relief from persistent knee pain and reclaiming an active lifestyle for our patients in Hampton, Williamsburg, Newport News, and the surrounding areas. At Tidewater Orthopaedics, we understand that the prospect of joint replacement can be intimidating, and we want you to feel confident in your choice. You’ll be pleased to know that all of our surgeons are subspecialists in their respective fields, which means they have elected to focus on a single area of orthopaedics in order to fully master that subspecialty. Therefore, when you consult with a physician at Tidewater Orthopaedics about knee replacement, you will be cared for by a surgeon who has extensive experience and specializes exclusively in treating conditions of the knee.
The fellowship-trained surgeons at Tidewater Orthopaedics perform the following types of knee replacement surgery for patients living in and around Hampton, Williamsburg, and Newport News, Virginia:
- Total knee replacement – The “gold standard” for treating severe knee arthritis, this procedure involves the replacement of all knee cartilage with a metal and plastic prosthesis.
- Partial knee replacement – A less invasive alternative that is suitable for some patients with arthritic changes that affect only one side of the knee, this procedure replaces the cartilage on one side with a metal and plastic prosthesis while preserving the kneecap and the cartilage on the opposite side, along with the anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments.
At Tidewater Orthopaedics, our surgeons perform both types of knee replacement with the assistance of computer-aided navigation, robotic instrumentation, or patient-specific instruments. Therefore, we are able to customize the procedure to meet the unique needs of each individual patient. As a result, the likelihood of achieving proper implant fit and limb alignment is significantly better than that which can be achieved through standard surgical techniques.
Knee replacement surgery can be a reliable solution for treating the debilitating pain and reduced mobility associated with knee arthritis.
