Expert Knee Replacement at

Knee replacement is the resurfacing of the ends of the knee bones with a combination of metal and plastic which helps eliminate bone on bone contact in arthritic pain. Knee replacement is intended to restore activity and will enable you to get back to enjoying your life. At Northwestern Memorial Hospital, we offer minimally invasive techniques, which result in faster recovery times and less pain after surgery.  Our specialists will tailor your knee replacement to fit your individual needs so you have the best outcomes possible.
