Many people experience knee pain. There may come a time when physical therapy, cortisone injections, braces, rest, ice and elevation no longer do the trick. Perhaps you have tried a range of treatments already and gone through all of the options for conservative care. We offer services for knee replacement in Hoffman Estates.
A knee replacement surgery today is not as invasive as it was a generation ago. Surgical technology has advanced to the point that many patients who have a knee replacement only spend one night in the hospital. Some may even be able to go home on the same day Thanks to these minimally invasive procedures, the healing time is also faster. You will not have to deal with weeks and weeks of not putting weight on your knee or waiting for an incision to heal.
Our knee replacement surgeries are only done when we determine that all of the non-surgical options have been exhausted. Even though we are surgeons, we do not treat surgery lightly. Our goal is to provide you with comprehensive care that puts your needs and health first. We inform you of all the risks and benefits of the procedure so that you can make an informed decision.
If you have any questions about knee replacement surgery, do not hesitate to ask. If you think of a question between your appointments, just give us a call. We will return your call as soon as possible. We also invite you to bring a trusted friend or family member to appointments.
