Let us try to understand whether it is the severe joint pain (knee joint pain) the reason behind knee replacement or something else.
Having knee pain doesn’t always mean that you need to consider knee replacement surgery as most people may experience knee pain in some point in their lives.

The best way to assess whether your knee pain must be the reason for considering a knee replacement is to ask the following questions:

Am I finding it difficult to walk upstairs easily?
Am I taking over the counter pain medication?
Am I getting really benefitted by using OTC pain medications?
IF YOU ANSWER YES TO MOST OR SOME OF THESE QUESTIONS, THEN IT IS THE TIME TO MEET DR. VASUDEVA for a thorough physical examination to know whether you knee a joint replacement (knee replacement).
