Knee Replacement Surgery

Dameron Hospital's Rapid Strides Accelerated Recovery© Knee Replacement Program uses state-of-the-art technology and a comprehensive, team-based approach for faster recovery. Our program offers minimally invasive surgical techniques combined with computer-assisted navigation to achieve excellent results for our patients regarding pain relief, mobility and restoring the quality of life.


Key benefits of the program include:

  • Less pain than traditional knee replacement surgery due to an all-encompassing, minimally invasive surgical approach.
  • Decreased joint pain and swelling as a result of multiple anesthetic techniques.
  • Little or no postoperative IV narcotics, which significantly decreases complications.
  • Accelerated recovery time so patients can take their first steps almost immediately after surgery.
  • A shorter hospital stay, as patients are admitted on the day of surgery and are usually discharged on the first postoperative day.
