Every year in the U.S., about 581,000 knee replacement surgeries are performed. Knee replacement surgeries were first done in 1968, and improvements in techniques and materials have enhanced effectiveness since then.
Reduction in pain and improvement in the ability to engage in activities of daily life are the chief benefits associated with knee replacements.
