The results of total knee replacement (TKR) surgery may be long-lasting, but not permanent. Most artificial knee replacements can last between 15 to 20 years. However, the durability of the implant may depend on the type of implant used, and the patient’s age, overall health, and physical activity level after surgery. The artificial knee replacement may wear out over time and need to be revised or replaced with revision surgery. Following a balanced diet and exercise plan, maintaining a healthy weight, avoiding high-impact activities, and going for regular follow-up appointments with your doctor can help prolong the life of the knee joint implant.
