Is your stiff, painful knee keeping you from participating in your usual activities? If so, it may be time to consider total knee replacement surgery at Powell Valley.
We invite you to discover the difference our robotic knee surgery can make in your recovery and the superior care our orthopedic team can offer.
Are you a candidate for knee replacement surgery?
Damage from osteoarthritis is the most common reason for knee replacement surgery. It may be time for a new knee if you have knee arthritis and conservative treatments, such as injections or pain medicines, haven't helped enough. You and your physician will consider whether:
- You're having trouble with daily activities, like walking or climbing stairs.
- Your knee pain is preventing you from sleeping through the night.
We use the Omnibotics system of computer navigation and robotics for total knee replacement surgery. This advanced system creates a 3-D model of your knee for a very accurate alignment.
And because robotic-assisted surgery is minimally invasive, you experience reduced pain after surgery, a quicker recovery and a longer-lasting knee that moves more naturally.

Our team of experts includes a board-certified physician in orthopedic surgery and sports medicine, along with a group of highly experienced nurses and staff.
When you have knee replacement surgery at Powell Valley, you can count on quality care and personal service—something that big surgery centers are unable to offer. Plus, our team goes the extra mile to make surgery safer. For instance, we take special steps to prevent blood clots after joint surgery and we have not had any postsurgical infections in our program.
And thanks to our short wait times, you can schedule your surgery sooner. This means you can be on your way to enjoying many more active years even sooner.
What you can expect from knee surgery
During total knee replacement, surgeons replace the damaged joint with synthetic parts that can last up to 20 years. A typical hospital stay is two days. Full recovery often takes six to eight weeks, but we'll help you with that part of your journey too.
