When should I have total joint surgery on my knee?

Based upon your history, x-rays and physical exam, your orthopedic surgeon can make some general recommendations. However, you will know when the time is right for you. We will ask you to decide if your discomfort, stiffness, and inability to perform tasks justify undergoing surgery. There is no harm in waiting to have surgery if conservative, non-operative methods can adequately control your discomfort. When your knee pain is stopping you from doing the things you love, may be the right time.
