When knee arthritis and pain has caused you to change the physical activity you are able to perform, it is time to consider conservative treatments that include medicines, physical therapy, weight loss, braces, and several other options. If those measures fail, it may be time for a total knee replacement.
Some of the benefits of total knee replacement:
- Reliable significant improvement in knee pain.
Get back to exercising and doing all of the activities you enjoy without your knee arthritis slowing you down.
- Outpatient surgery options.
You may be a candidate to leave the hospital the same day as your surgery. Talk with your Gulf Ortho doctor to learn more on how we make sure your pain relief and recovery is completed in order to get back to your bed the first night of surgery.
- Long lasting relief.
Knee replacements used to last only 10-15 years, but new technologies and better surgeon technique have now made your total knee replacement likely to last forever!
- Personalized implants with the newest computer technology.
We only use the best implants that have been proved to be the best available in the market.
In addition to traditional knee replacement operations, Gulf Orthopaedics is able to provide the VELYS™ Robotic-Assisted Solution at Mobile Infirmary. This technology is designed to help ensure predictable results to improve outcomes, increase mobility and helps patients recover faster.
The VELYS Robotic-Assisted Solution works in tandem with the ATTUNE® Knee System, which is an innovative knee implant designed to work more closely with an individual patient’s anatomy. The ATTUNE Knee can help increase stability and reduce pain, providing better range of motion and preventing the unstable feeling some patients experience during everyday activities, such as bending and walking up and down stairs. With these systems together, there is now an option for patients who are seeking the latest technology designed to provide digital precision in knee replacement.

Why Choose Minimally Invasive Total Knee Replacement?
Many patients want to restore the full mobility that’s made possible by healthy knees, but they do not like the idea of a lengthy recovery. Our approach to knee replacement incorporates robotics to provide a minimally invasive, effective total knee replacement treatment option.
Through advanced surgical robotics technology, reliable knee replacement is possible with incredibly short downtimes. This technology allows for smaller incisions and high levels of precision that help to preserve the surrounding bone and tissue for faster recovery. The results of this procedure can last patients a lifetime.
Patients who want to have a total knee replacement procedure to help them regain mobility can take the first step in the treatment process by scheduling a consultation. The consultation will help patients understand exactly what the combination of precision robotics in surgery and advanced implants can offer them.
If patients have questions or concerns about the procedure, they can have them addressed during the consultation. Their medical history, health, and expectations will also be discussed at this time.
Total Knee Replacement Aftercare
Due to the minimally invasive nature of our total knee replacement service, patients can expect a short recovery period. Some soreness and mild discomfort is normal during the healing process. After your procedure, you will be provided with aftercare instructions to ease discomfort and support optimal healing.
