Re: Replacement knee
The triathlon knee or "get around knee" is a very good implant. Most of the total knees on the market are very comparable. The first things first, you need a reputable surgeon. You can have the best implant possible, but if the person putting the implant in doesn't have a clue or doesn't seem to care about your outcome, then it's all for nothing.
I have been a part of many, many total joints. I've seen many surgeons good and bad. The good ones take the time to explain what they are doing, the implant they use and why they use it, and answer all your questions before the surgery happens. A good surgeon explains rehabilitation and peaks and valleys that might occur. Most surgeons use a particular implant because they feel comfortable with it and it is what's best for the patients. If you want to know more.
First things first......how do you know you need a new knee?
