Knee replacement surgery patients receive extensive patient education from the orthopaedic surgery team, including the potential problems to watch out for after the procedure. Some knee clicking sounds are normal after the surgery. However, your orthopaedic surgeon may still want to evaluate you, especially if you experience any pain with the clicking sounds.
When you watch this video, you’ll get a brief introduction to the anatomy of your replacement knee. Because of the movement of the knee’s components, the clicking sounds are more likely to occur when you stand up from a seated position.
