Total knee replacement (TKR) has been proven to significantly ease pain and increase leg function and most importantly, improve quality of life.
According to a research article published in the official journal of the American College of Rheumatology1 – 18,897 patients who underwent TKR were assessed and results suggest that TKR is highly effective in reducing knee pain in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
Cost and quality
According to the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association (an insurance provider covering more than 32% of the America's population2) the average cost of a TKR in 64 markets across America is USD $31,1243 (Page 4, Paragraph 1).
