How are the new "Total Knee Replacement" procedures?

I have a little cartiledge left but a knee replacement is in my future. I had an appt with orthopedic
nurse practitioner and she prescribed Diclofenac and said if still painful after 3 weeks to call and
they will do a cortisone injection.

I saw some You Tube videos of new ways they do the surgery now but curious if anyone here
has had these new types of knee replacemetns yet?

No, didn't need surgery. The Diclofenac (anti-inflammatory) has taken the pain away :)
