Knowing it's time for a new hip or knee

Total hip and knee replacements are typically elective operations. The natural progression of hip or knee arthritis is that the pain fluctuates, typically relating to the patient's weight and activity, as well as the weather. At a certain point, "bad days" become more frequent than "good days."

These are some common signs that it may be time to replace a hip or knee:

  • The frequency or intensity of pain is increasing.
  • Routine tasks like dressing, walking, climbing stairs or exercising have become difficult.
  • You have pain that interferes with a good night's sleep.
  • You are unable to walk comfortably.
  • The pain doesn't go away with rest or non-surgical treatment, such as physical therapy.
  • The pain or limitations are affecting you emotionally.
