Surgical treatment options for knee OA

When all non-surgical treatment interventions have been exhausted and no longer help to alleviate the pain, and mobility is severely compromised, your doctor might suggest a knee replacement surgery. The best time and type of surgery can be determined with the help of an orthopaedic surgeon.

Total knee replacement
Partial knee replacement
Osteotomy
Arthroscopy

A less common surgical treatment for knee OA symptoms is arthroscopy, which usually involves the insertion of a small camera into the knee to get a clearer picture of what is happening and how best to treat it.
