Total Knee Replacement

Why Choose Florida Hospital?

Total knee replacement is a surgical procedure to replace a damaged, diseased, and/or injured knee joint with an artificial joint (prosthetic). This surgical procedure is performed on an estimated 719,000 patients per year, the largest number of joint replacements of all types. Florida Hospital is recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of America’s best hospitals for knee replacement surgery. Patients experiencing chronic knee pain, swelling knee joint, and restricted movement are the best candidates for a total knee replacement. Though this knee joint replacement is most commonly performed on adults older than 60-years-old, younger adults may develop a serious knee condition that requires this surgical procedure to restore normal function. Orthopedic specialists at Florida Hospital are highly recognized in successful, total knee replacement surgery and can recommend this or alternative treatments, to patients with severe knee conditions.
