How Much Does a Knee Replacement Cost?

According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, “If your knee is severely damaged by arthritis or injury, it may be hard for you to perform simple activities such as walking or climbing stairs.  If medications, changing your activity level, and using walking supports are no longer helpful, you may want to consider a total knee replacement surgery.”

Because knee replacement is a major surgery, and since artificial joints need to be replaced in 10-15 years, it is usually avoided until there are no other options.  Most patients who receive a total knee replacement are between the ages 65-70.
