Ask An Orthopedist: Knee Replacement Surgery Incisions

Calendar November 8, 2016

Question: For a knee replacement surgery, which type of incision is the best?

Almost all knee replacements are done with a straight incision over the middle of the knee.  This tends to heal well and allows us (the surgeon) good access to all parts of the knee.
