Knee pain can be caused by a sudden injury, an overuse injury, or by an underlying condition, such as arthritis. Treatment will vary depending on the cause.

You'll only need a knee replacement if your knee gives you pain,stiffness or loss of function that affects your daily life and activities. Your orthopaedic surgeon will be able to advise you on the surgical options and on the potential pros and cons of having or delaying surgery.

Knee replacement surgery may help you if other arthritis treatments don't work and you have any of the following:

  • Limited ability to walk
  • Inability to get in or out of a chair                      
  • A bowing in or out of the knee
  • Moderate to severe pain when resting

You’ll also need to take care in the first few weeks when moving around and doing household jobs so that you don’t damage your new knee.
