The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) estimates that nearly 270,000 knee replacement surgeries are performed each year in the United States. While the majority of procedures are performed on patients age 65 or older, an increasing number of younger patients are opting for knee replacement procedures as well. All-Star Orthopaedics specializes in orthopaedic surgery in Dallas, with specific emphasis on providing customized care for each patient and their individual needs and surgical expectations.
The Dallas orthopaedic surgeons at All-Star Orthopaedics say chronic knee pain due to wear and tear or a sport-related injury can affect patients of any age, which is why they offer customized, minimally invasive procedures. While the surgeons at All-Star Orthopaedics say surgery is only performed once all non-surgical remedies have been exhausted, creating a patient-specific knee replacement surgery plan allows them to address the particular concerns of each patient. The surgeons add that customized treatment, combined with individualized physical therapy and their state-of-the-art knee replacement procedures is designed to require less downtime than other related techniques.
Regardless of the type of knee pain their patients are experiencing, the orthopaedic specialists at All-Star Orthopaedics say patient-specific knee replacement surgery is sometimes the best option for substantial relief of knee pain in Dallas patients - once all other options have been discussed. Ultimately, the surgeons say the customized, minimally invasive surgical approach is a relatively quick procedure designed to give their patients a prosthetic appliance to reduce pain and discomfort, improve mobility, and resume the active lifestyle they are accustomed to.
