Advanced Knee Replacement Techniques

Our surgeons use advanced techniques for total knee replacement surgery. Our innovative knee replacement method is designed to reconstruct a patient’s specific limb alignment and knee biomechanics, meticulously mirroring the pre-arthritic axes of the patient’s femur. By resurfacing the distal femur and proximal tibia, the technique aims to restore the patient’s original limb alignment and joint lines as they were before arthritis took its toll. Unlike traditional knee replacement, our advanced method utilizes precise bone cuts to recreate the knee’s natural laxities and compartment forces, effectively sparing the ligaments from unnecessary stress. This approach aligns with Surgical Solutions Network’s commitment to providing advanced surgical solutions that enhance recovery and optimize outcomes.

How Do I Know if I am a Candidate for Knee Replacement?

Knee replacement is often required when conservative measures such as pain medication, injections, and physical therapy are no longer effective in managing knee joint symptoms such as:

  • Stiffness
  • Pain
  • Damage

These symptoms are often the result of arthritis.

What To Expect with Partial or Total Knee Replacement Surgery

Partial or total knee replacement surgery involves removing damaged portions of the knee and capping the bony surfaces with artificial prosthetic implants. The surgery repositions the knee into proper alignment and replicates the original function, allowing for a near-normal range of motion for the patient.

Our healthcare teams are here to support you both before and after your knee replacement surgery. Typically, patients come to our facilities in Toronto, Calgary, or Brossard one day prior to their surgery. At our Brossard, Quebec facility, it’s common for patients to be discharged on the day of their surgery. In Toronto and Calgary, patients often stay overnight and are discharged the next day. All patients undergoing knee replacement surgery can return home within 2 to 3 days post-operation.

While post-surgery processes vary slightly across our locations, our commitment to high-quality patient care remains the same.

Recovery From Knee Replacement Surgery

Typically, you will need a walker or cane for the first 4-6 weeks. Most patients can expect a 50% improvement at 6 weeks and 80% at 12 weeks. The last bit of recovery is mainly endurance training to help combat fatigue and stiffness, which can take up to a year to improve. The most common complaints are stiffness, ache, and swelling in the front of the knee. Your deep “arthritic joint” pain should be gone the minute you wake up from surgery, but post-surgical pain in total knee replacement surgery can be significant.

It is important to remember that a partial or total knee replacement is a major surgery. There will always be post-operative pain and swelling. Everyone reacts differently to surgery and anesthesia and will recover differently. However, in our experience, the techniques and protocols used by our surgeons will allow for faster rehabilitation, so you can recover and return to your “normal self” sooner.

Knee Replacement FAQ

What is this procedure for, and how will it alleviate my symptoms?

Knee joint stiffness and pain are typical as we age. Those with bursitis and arthritis typically proceed with nonsurgical treatments until they are no longer effective, and surgery is the only solution. We utilize precise and proven advanced technology that allows your surgeon to match the implant to the shape and size of your resected bone, resulting in a natural feel and normal function post-operatively.

How do I qualify for this procedure?

All patients are required to complete a Pre-Surgical Patient Questionnaire to provide us with their basic medical history. We also require their most recent X-rays. If the patient’s diagnostics confirm they qualify for the procedure and our facility, we will request a history and physical along with bloodwork and ECG from their family doctor.

What is the average process like, and how long will it take for me to return to my normal activities?

Upon receiving the patient’s medical documentation, booking the surgeon consultation can be arranged within 1 week and surgery scheduled within 2 to 4 weeks. Recovery time varies by patient, but most patients will be up and walking the day of surgery. Most patients are typically back to their daily activities within 2 to 4 months and can return to specialty sports within 6 months.

How should I prepare for my surgery?

Normally, people need knee replacements due to severe osteoarthritis, meaning most patients have had to deal with pain and stiffness symptoms for many years before surgery is undertaken. As a result, secondary problems like muscle weakness, inflexibility, restriction in joint range of motion, muscular tension, and reduced exercise tolerance develop. These factors certainly can make your recovery from surgery more difficult. The best thing you can do to prepare for a successful recovery is to consistently complete the daily pre-surgical exercises recommended by your surgeon.
