Total Knee Replacement at Phoebe

Total Knee Arthroplasty Surgical Outcomes

About the procedure: A total knee arthroplasty – also known as TKA or knee replacement, is surgery that removes parts of the knee joint and replaces it with artificial parts.

Understanding the data: With zero infections out of 65 TKA surgeries in 2018, Phoebe Sumter’s outcomes were above the expected rate for this procedure.

How we’re improving outcomes: There are modifiable patient risk factors (such as diabetes and, weight, nutritional status). We work with you and your care provider to minimize these factors to reduce the likelihood of infection.
