Knee Replacement Surgery

In knee replacement surgery, your doctor will remove damaged bone and cartilage from the knee and replace it with a new artificial knee. 

Most knee replacement surgery is done because of osteoarthritis, a condition that causes the joint to break down (degenerate). Osteoarthritis affects mostly middle-aged and older adults.

At OHSU, the latest cutting-edge research is helping us bring you new treatments and cures for bone and joint injuries and disease.
