Knee Replacement

From partial knee replacements to complex revision surgeries, we have the expertise and resources to care for even the most complex knee issues.

If your osteoarthritis has gotten so bad that your knee pain keeps you up at night and prevents you from leading your life, you may be ready for partial or total knee replacement surgery. We always strive to provide you with the most natural feeling knee movement possible, and to spare healthy bone and tissue.

Connecticut Orthopaedic Institute is also among the few locations nationally offering the bicruciate retaining total knee replacement, a knee-replacement procedure that allows patients to retain their anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and posterior cruciate ligament (PCL). With those ligaments intact, the patient can expect greater range of motion, a more natural gait, and pain relief comparable to a conventional total knee replacement.

We have established protocols for pre-operative and post-operative knee care to help you recover faster and get the best surgical outcome possible. Our goal is to improve your knee’s function and range of motion while keeping you as comfortable as possible with advanced pain control methods.

We will help you decide which options are best for your knee problem, and carefully address concerns you may have about knee replacement surgery. We will educate you completely about what to expect before, during, and after your knee replacement surgery. You will have a thorough pre-anesthesia risk evaluation, plenty of time for questions, and all the individualized care and attention you need. Your comfort and safety are always top priority, and we want you to have the best outcome after your knee surgery.
