Persistent pain after knee replacement is the most common complication after this surgery. While most people are worried about risks including infection and blood clot, the most common reason people are not satisfied with their outcome after knee replacement is persistent discomfort.

Wear and tear, illness, or a knee injury can damage the cartilage around your knee bones and prevent the joint from working well. If your arthritis symptoms are severe, your doctor may recommend knee replacement.
