Investigation and Management of Patients with Problematic Knee Replacements
Knee replacement is a successful procedure for the treatment of joint pain caused by arthritis. However, it is well recognised that 10-20% of patients report pain, stiffness or dissatisfaction after surgery. These symptoms have a wide range of causes and as such these patients need careful assessment and supportive care. To optimise outcomes and to identify potentially treatable causes, thorough and prompt Consultant led investigation is required and referral to specialist regional MDTs as needed.
