Hello Lybrate user, first let you know that surgical replacement is the last option if all other non surgical management have failed. Hence go to near by physiotherispist regularly ,he can manage your problem without any side effects and gives pain relif also. Regards.

I think a clinical review is very important. For the knee there are other procedures also then replacement. Need to see the patient to give fruitful advice.
