TX Orthopedic surgeons Dr. Mollabashy and Dr. Gilbert offer a variety of for joint treatments and replacements that fit a patient’s unique, individual needs.

Dallas, TX ( Freepr101 ) August 27, 2013 - The knee is the largest joint in your body, and so many of our daily activities require our knees to function properly. Having severe damage to your knees is not only painful, but it causes serious disruption to an active lifestyle. If you are having severe knee pain, a Total Knee Replacement may be in your best interest.

Drs. Mollabashy and Gilbert of Greater Dallas Orthopaedics recommend Total Knee Replacement surgery for their patients when nonsurgical solutions, such as medication and walking supports, no longer work. There are several factors behind the need for a Total Knee Replacement, with the most common being osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, both of which can cause pain and substantial damage to knees.

According to the American Academy of Orthapaedic Surgeons, Total Knee Replacement procedures are common, and involve only four steps. The damaged cartilage surfaces at the ends of the femur and tibia are first removed, along with a small amount of the underlying bone. The removed cartilage is then replaced with metal components, recreating the joint's surface. The kneecap is also cut and resurfaced with a plastic button. Finally, a medical-grade plastic spacer is inserted between the metal components. The metal implants are designed to restore alignment and function to the knee. The entire procedure takes about 1 to 2 hours, with a recovery period of approximately 4 weeks.

If you are experiencing issues with knee pain or damage, Drs. Mollabashy and Gilbert may be able to help. Both doctors are highly trained in treating joint complications resulting from degenerative joint diseases. Both doctors work closely with patients to develop the best possible treatment plans. The highly-trained team at Orthopaedic Associates of Dallas implements the latest advances in joint replacement surgery to restore and improve patients' full range of motion, allowing them to resume an active lifestyle free of pain.
