Knee replacement

Cartilage in your knee can become damaged from arthritis, injury or normal wear-and-tear. If you are experiencing chronic knee pain or limited function, you may benefit from a knee replacement surgery. During this procedure, an orthopedic surgeon will remove the affected cartilage and replace it with artificial pieces.

  • You have had X-rays or other imaging tests that show bone damage in the knee

  • You have persistent knee swelling and inflammation, despite taking medications
  • Your leg bows in or out

Types of knee replacement surgery we offer

Knee replacement surgery, or knee arthroplasty, restores function in the knee joint and reduces discomfort. It involves resurfacing or replacing damaged parts of the joint with artificial implants.

We offer two types of knee replacement surgery. Your surgeon will determine which procedure is right for you depending on the condition of your knee and which parts are damaged.

Partial knee replacement

A partial knee replacement is performed when only one component of your knee needs to be resurfaced or replaced. During the procedure, your surgeon removes damaged cartilage or bone and replaces them with a prosthetic implant.

Total knee replacement (TKR)

If your entire knee joint is damaged, you may need a total knee replacement, which may also include repairing the ligaments. Our surgeons replace your knee bones with implants created from a combination of plastic, metal or ceramics.

Robot-assisted knee replacements

We use minimally invasive techniques whenever possible, including advanced approaches such as robot-assisted knee replacement.

One of our facilities, Sky Ridge Medical Center, was the first hospital in Colorado to perform minimally invasive knee replacement to partially resurface the knee using a robot-assisted system. This innovative treatment, typically performed to treat early- to mid-stage osteoarthritis, provides precise results and shorter recovery times.

What to expect after knee replacement surgery

Recovery from knee replacement surgery is aided by our physical rehabilitation services which help restore your knee's function. Our physical therapy and rehabilitation specialists will begin this process with you while you are still an inpatient. These licensed therapists create a personalized rehabilitation regimen to help you strengthen, move and use your knee.
