Mercy Guide to Knee Replacement Surgery

Knee pain is difficult to ignore, affecting every step you take. When knee pain and loss of function become severe, it’s time to consider different treatment options. Surgery becomes a consideration when medicines and other treatments no longer relieve pain.
