I have a question. I would like to know if I am appropriate candidate (I am 32 and having constant pain in my knee/arthritis) for knee replacement and who is appropriate candidate.
Thanks in advance!
Total knee replacements are usually performed on people suffering form severe arthritis. Those are patients over age 55 and even younger. Here is a list of some variables that are considered important for knee replacement: daily pain, pain so strong that prevents you normal activities, significant stiffness in knee, instability of knee, deformity of knee. These variables are vary and are always to be considered. You must talk to specialist if you are considering knee replacement.
