ORA performs more total knee replacements than any other orthopedic practice in the region, with over 1,200 total knee replacements performed each year. Recent advancements in joint replacement surgery include more durable implants, less invasive surgical techniques and quicker recovery. Total knee replacement surgery may be an option if conservative treatments have failed to deliver the pain relief you need.

Damage in the knee – the body’s largest and arguably most complex joint – can stem from a variety of factors, including trauma, years of wear and tear, osteoarthritis, and other degenerative conditions. Candidates for joint replacement are patients whose condition has not or cannot be improved by more conservative forms of treatment, such as physical therapy, medication, or joint injections. In the event that all conservative treatment methods prove ineffective, the skilled surgeons at ORA Orthopedics’ Total Joint Center of Excellence can help.
Total knee replacement is more accurately termed a knee resurfacing, as only the surfaces of the knee are replaced. The damaged bone and cartilage are removed and replaced with metal and plastic implants, which mimic natural knee motion and function. By utilizing the latest advances in total knee replacement surgery, our surgeons help patients in the Quad Cities regain comfort and mobility with less risk and post-surgical discomfort than ever before.
However, surgery is always considered to be a last resort at ORA Orthopedics. Your ORA doctor may suggest alternative forms of treatment after evaluating your condition and symptoms. If surgery is appropriate, we will carefully outline the benefits and drawbacks of this procedure to help you make an informed decision about your joint health.
