“What Does An X-Ray Of A Knee Replacement Look Like After Surgery?”

Posted By admin On October 25, 2010 @ 4:23 pm In Knee Replacement Surgery | 1 Comment

Every so often, a patient asks me, “Dr. Gold – What will my knee look like after a total replacement?”

To help them understand the post-operative knee structure, I like to show them a picture of a knee replacement X-Ray after surgery.

That said, here is an x-ray of a patient who had successful knee replacement surgery [1]. I thought you might like to see it as well.

As you can see, the structure of the knee is restored to provide a smooth, flexible joint. Another way to consider the positive impact of a successful knee replacement surgery is to consider a before-and-after drawing. Here is a good illustration of the knee structure after knee replacement surgery.

I hope that helps you better understand the structural enhancements of a good knee replacement surgery.

Best regards,
