Knee Replacement Surgery
At Silicon Valley Orthopaedics in California, Dr. Nic Gay and Dr. Masi Reynolds specialize in offering patients joint preservation treatment options. If possible, we aim to restore or maintain the integrity of the original joint. However, patients who have suffered significant destruction of the knee joint may require partial or complete replacement of the joint.
Osteoarthritis is the most common contributing factor in surgeries that involve partial or complete knee replacement. The condition is typically the result of damaged cartilage, which leads to wear and tear from excess friction stresses on the bones in the joint.
If you are suffering from chronic knee pain, instability or loss of function, knee replacement surgery may be the most viable solution. Dr. Nic Gay and Dr. Masi Reynolds provide a comprehensive clinical examination before recommending knee replacement, which explores, among other things, any risk factors associated.
Knee Replacement Rehabilitation
After a partial or complete knee replacement surgery, rehabilitation is needed. Dr. Nic Gay and Dr. Masi Reynolds create an individualized treatment plan based on factors like the patient’s lifestyle, age and medical history. At Silicon Valley Orthopedics, knee replacement surgery is a patient-guided treatment option.
Knee replacement is considered when conservative approaches to treatment are unlikely to or haven’t resulted in improved joint health, stability or function. All treatment options are discussed with patients, and any associated risks are fully outlined during the consultation. Your improved quality of life is our primary concern when recommending treatment at Silicon Valley Orthopaedics. Dr. Nic Gay and Dr. Masi Reynolds promote affordable and effective knee replacement options in California.
