Does painful arthritis in your knee stop you from doing the things you enjoy? A knee replacement can help put the pain behind you. More than 600,000 Americans get a knee replacement each year. In fact, joint replacements are considered to be among the most effective surgeries in all of medicine. Recent research finds that 90% of knee replacements last at least 20 years.
Orthopedic surgeons at Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento (SMCS) specialize in advanced knee replacement techniques that can help ease knee pain and restore mobility. In 2020, U.S. News and World Report ranked the hospital as “high-performing” in both knee and hip replacement surgery, giving it the top ranking of 5/5.
