Hello @TLR_CO - and :welome:

First of all, you start by using the "Surgeon Locator" in the blue bar at the top of the page. Fill in your post code and how far you are prepared to travel.

If names come up, then read about them and make sure they specialize in replacing knees and hips.
You need a surgeon who replaces abut 100 knees a year.

This article may help you:

Your own doctor may also be able to suggest a surgeon, if you ask him/her "Who do you think is the best surgeon to replace my knee?"

If you post where you live, there's always a chance that someone here has had a good surgeon that they are happy with.

And you need an orthopaedic surgeon who does knees and hips almost exclusively, and not every joint.
