Outpatient Total Knee Replacement

1 in 5 Americans suffer from arthritis of the knee. Total knee replacement is the number one reason for hospitalization in America. Conservative options that can be considered include: physical therapy, steroid injections, PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) treatment, stem cell injections, or visco supplementation therapy. If these conservative treatment options fail and symptoms persist, surgical intervention may become necessary and a total knee replacement is a clinically proven treatment option with success rates greater than 90% at 15 years following surgery.

What You Need To Know

The OJRCA Method

Total knee replacement (also known as total knee arthroplasty) is a surgical procedure where the bones of the knee are resurfaced and replaced with implants. Typically, your surgeon will remove the damaged cartilage and bone from the surfaces at the ends of the femur, tibia, and patella. This amounts to a few millimeters of underlying bone. Then, your surgeon will position the metal implants that will replace the bone and secure them to the bone resurface typically with cement. Finally, a durable plastic insert will be placed between the metal pieces acting as “new cartilage” and allow movement without friction

Total knee replacement might be the right option for you if:

You have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the knee and have failed to get relief from conservative treatment options
You have symptoms such as; swelling in the knee, feeling of warmth in the joint, stiffness in the knee, or pain that worsens with physical activity

“Dr. Clifford is an excellent surgeon, but also has a way to talk to and discuss the issues and concerns with his patients. I continue to tell everyone that asks, and some that don’t, how great it was working with him and what excellent results I had. I am very grateful I had him in my corner while going through these surgeries.”

-Mary B.

Patient Success

“Dr. Clifford also insisted that I recuperate at home but that I go out for physical therapy. He said that he wanted his patients to “get up, get dressed and go out for physical therapy”. I believe that’s what saved me!”

-Jondeen T.

“No way! Was my first reaction to the idea that a hip replacement could be done as outpatient surgery. But now, having had both hips replaced six months apart and having returned home the same day for each, I am convinced, pleased, and walking around without pain for the first time in years.”

“I have never met another surgeon that truly loves what he does, cares about his patients and listens to what you have to say.”
