Knee replacement surgery is performed when bone and cartilage is damaged. Osteoarthritis is the most common reason for knee replacement operations in the United States.

Individuals may consider surgery if they have stiff, painful knees and normal daily activities are difficult to perform. Surgery can also be considered if other treatments are no longer working.

Dr. Heinen will talk about partial and total knee replacement, as well as the risks and advantages of surgery.

If interested in attending this lecture, please call Arcadia Senior Service (626) 574-5130 to reserve your space. This program is for individual’s age 50 and over.
