Total Knee Replacement

Total knee replacement surgery is the procedure of choice for patients with debilitating arthritis of the knee. It is a common operation (over 250,000 performed in the U.S. annually) with a very high success rate. It is important to remember that it is a major operation, and a thorough medical evaluation prior to surgery is required.

Our surgeons are specially trained in the use of state-of-the-art instruments and surgical techniques to optimize your prospect for a durable and long-lasting knee. It is our mission to customize your surgery with components that best fit your level of activity and lifestyle goals.

Customized Knee Replacement

ValleyCare was the first center in Northern California to offer DePuy Orthopedics TruMatch® Personalized Solutions for knee replacement. This technology helps to ensure that precise sizing and alignment is achieved for each individual patient. This offers the potential for a longer-lasting and better-functioning joint over time.

Partial Knee Replacement

Partial knee replacement, also known as unicompartmental arthroplasty, is the procedure of choice for patients who have debilitating arthritis affecting only one part of the knee. Typically, the surgical incision is smaller, and recovery times are much faster. Not all people with arthritis are good candidates for a partial knee replacement. Our surgeons will help you decide whether or not a partial knee replacement is right for you.

Therapy

Therapists have received specialized total knee replacement training of the highest quality. Each therapist will personally design a customized exercise program that will assist you in swiftly reaching your activity goals. Preoperative teaching classes, postoperative rehabilitation protocols designed specifically for total knee replacements and outpatient rehabilitation centers of excellence after you've left the hospital all provide for an unmatched recuperation experience.
