If arthritis or knee injury is limiting your everyday activities, such as walking and bending, and you still experience pain when resting, your doctor may recommend knee replacement surgery. It may improve the stiffness in your knee that limits your ability to move or lift your leg.
Knee replacement surgery is considered after careful diagnosis of your joint problem. If anti-inflammatory drugs or other treatments, such as physiotherapy, are providing little pain and mobility relief, you may wish to discuss this option with your doctor.
