Lasting Results for Knee Replacement Surgery
History of Success
During the past 25 years, our orthopaedic surgeons have seen greater than 90 percent success with the original artificial knee we implanted. About a third of our knee replacements are done to correct surgeries performed elsewhere. We offer you the best care possible, including less risk of complications and a decreased likelihood of needing additional surgery in the future.
Experienced, Specialized Team
Our board-certified surgeons are fellowship-trained, meaning they have undergone additional years of specialized training. As a team, they perform hundreds of knee replacement surgeries each year. Many of our orthopaedic surgeons perform joint replacement procedures exclusively. This helps them manage both routine and complicated replacements effectively.
Before- and After-Surgery Care
Our Joint Health Program can help you prepare your body for surgery so you have the best chance for a good outcome. After surgery, physical therapy can help you regain your ability to move and enjoy activities of daily living.
Convenient, Knee-Specific Physical Therapy
Our in-house physical therapists specialize in knee replacement and conduct your therapy sessions in the same place as your clinic visits.
Better, Longer-Lasting Joint Replacements
As leaders in the field of orthopaedic and joint replacement research, our joint replacement surgeons constantly test and develop promising new procedures and artificial joints. Our goal is to make joint replacements work better and last longer.
Shorter Hospital Stays, Faster Recovery
Our knee replacement surgeons were early adopters of important new technologies like patient-specific, computer-assisted, and minimally invasive knee replacements. These techniques, and the expert care provided by our regional anesthesiologists, pain specialists, specially trained nurses, and physical therapists, combine to help shorten your hospital stay and hasten your recovery.
Where you receive your care matters. Duke University Hospital’s nationally ranked orthopaedics program was named best in North Carolina by U.S. News & World Report for 2019–2020.
