Many people live with knee pain day-to-day, and if you’re one of them you know how difficult it can make even the simplest everyday activities. You might not know however that there could be something you can do about it.

A knee replacement might help to relieve pain, restore and/or retain mobility, and keep you as independent and healthy as possible.

These days, replacements are more common than ever, and the procedures are being offered to younger and younger people.
