My mother is 54 and having osteoarthritis. She has pain in her knees since 10 years and now it has become really worse. Doctor has advised us for changing of one of her knee where the gap between bones has become negligible. She is very hesitant of surgery and we are also afraid that how will it go? Will it be successful? She is overweight and not so old to get her bones changed. But then we see her screaming in pain. We are in a dilemma about her future. Is it safe? Or is there any other cure without surgery?

Ans: Surgery does not cure the problem.
It is only a tie over for moving with a new joint.
But if the muscles are not supported with active movement and joints are not supported through weight reduction, this problem will continue to exist.
So why not aim at these things before going for Surgery
