Knee Replacement Tijuana

Knee replacement in Tijuana is a surgical procedure with the goal of repairing the damage to the knee joint with new artificial pieces that allow its natural function. One or more parts of the knee can be repaired depending on the damage, that is, a total knee replacement or a partial replacement.


Knee wear and tear can cause pain or loss of mobility. During the procedure, damaged cartilage in the femur, tibia, and patella may be replaced. Prostheses with metal alloys, specialized plastic materials, and polymers are used.

Knee replacement in Tijuana is performed on people of all ages, although more often on older people. It is a highly recommended treatment for those who suffer from a severe injury, suffer arthritis, or experience severe pain when moving.

During the evaluation stage, an orthopedic surgeon will consider important aspects such as the range of motion, stability, and the current strength of the knee. But also, when choosing the type of prosthesis, your age, weight, type of activity, knee shape, and other particular issues will be taken into account.

Aspects to consider if a person is eligible for a knee replacement

Typically, an orthopedic surgeon in Tijuana uses an X-ray study to help identify knee damage. Just as there are warning signs that patients can identify to know that the knee requires surgical attention. These are some of the most common symptoms:

  • Swelling. It begins to appear chronically; that is, when performing certain activities, it becomes inflamed frequently. At first, rest or medication may help.
  • Rigidity. Do you have trouble walking, climbing stairs, sitting down, or getting up? Even simple activities can be difficult because mobility is limited. Some people choose to help themselves with a walker or cane.
  • Pain. Knee wear is usually characterized by severe pain. Either when moving or even when resting. Some suffer from almost unbearable pain at night, requiring high medication to control it.
  • Deformity. Over time, wear can cause certain deformities or changes in the physiognomy of the knee. For example, bending the knee out or in.
  • Failure of other treatments. You may have tried traditional medicine, anti-inflammatories, cortisone injections, physical therapy, or other methods that relieve some but do not solve your problem.
