Total Knee Replacement May Be Delayed by Up To Ten Years with an Arthroscopic Knee Surgery Treatment Known as the “Package”
Date:1/31/2013

Vail, Colorado (PRWEB) January 31, 2013

The Steadman Philippon Research Institute (SPRI), a world leader in orthopedic and sports medicine research, has recently published a study on the use of arthroscopic treatment of advanced osteoarthritis to delay the need for total knee replacement. Dr. Richard Steadman, well known for pioneering orthopedic treatments such as microfracture, led the groundbreaking study.

The study evaluated the ten-year survival of knees with moderate to severe arthritis treated with a systematic arthroscopic approach developed by Dr. Steadman known as the “Package”. The package combines several procedures to address pain generators in the knee and increase the volume in the knee to provide more motion. The results of this study confirmed that the procedure extended the life of the native knee for up to a decade in some patients before they needed to take more drastic measures for treating osteoarthritis.

This study, titled "Ten-Year Survivorship after Knee Arthroscopy in Patients with Kellgren-Lawrence Grade 3 and Grade 4 Osteoarthritis of the Knee," is significant because it found that patients who received the Package treatment could maintain an average activity level and participate in recreational sports. Patients in this study wanted to avoid total knee replacement to retain their activity level and delay knee replacement surgery.

Patients were aware that the Package is a treatment for reducing symptoms and delaying knee replacement and not a cure for arthritis. Although there’s some controversy with arthroscopy in older patients with advanced osteoarthritis, many patients in the study delayed knee replacement while enjoying a high quality of life
