Good Candidate for Knee Replacement Surgery

  • Your primary doctor or an orthopedic surgeon indicates you need a knee replacement
  • Your knee structure is stable and you do not have sever bone loss around the knee
  • You have not had prior open knee surgery on the same knee
  • Your weight is proportionate to your height.

Stages of Knee Pain

Stage 1— you may feel minimal knee pain that develops slowly over the years. When you put your weight on an arthritic knee, the pain increasingly surges.

Stage 2—daily activities produce severe knee pain. It becomes difficult to achieve day to day activities, such as sitting, walking, using stairs and using the restroom.

Stage 3—you begin pain medication to ease recurring, physical knee discomfort. Your doctor may suggest conservative treatments including medication, injections, braces, and physical therapy. If none of these treatments allow you to recover some of your knee function, than a knee surgery in Mexico is the treatment of choice.
