Who is knee surgery recommended for?
Pain in your knee may affect your lifestyle, daily routine, your hobbies, or even your working capacity. As the population of the world is aging, more and more people face this problem. In the last 30 years artificial knee replacement has improved greatly. In Hungary there are 8 000-10 000 knee surgeries a year.

Who can avoid surgery?
If your knee is slightly or moderately damaged or ill (beginning phase of arthritis) you might avoid surgery with the following preventive methods:

  • on a short term: using painkillers, medicines against inflammation, use of local injections, physiotherapy, spa,
  • on a long term: lifestyle change, weight control, more physical activity, regular physiotherapy and exercises

What is the aim of the surgery?
The most important aim of the surgery is stopping the painful rubbing of the bones on each other. With the replacement of the damaged or arthritic joint it will move smoothly and without pain and you may return to most of your physical activities you have enjoyed before.
