To find out more about Nanoknee and whether your health insurance will pay for our advanced, fast-track recovery protocol knee replacement surgery, we make the entire process easy for you.
Call one of our convenient locations in Los Angeles, Pismo Beach, or Bakersfield to arrange a consultation to discuss full or partial knee replacement surgery.
Prior to your consultation, we offer a free insurance verification service, so you are fully informed about any costs involved and what your insurer pays.
Contact Nanoknee to have a patient navigator schedule a consultation with one of our Surgeons.
During your consultation we will answer all your questions about what to expect with our less invasive, fast recovery knee replacement surgery.
At Nanoknee, our patients are each treated with kindness, compassion, and personalized care, from start to finish. We understand that the prospect of undergoing surgery can be frightening.
You can have full confidence in our process – our knee surgeons have performed thousands of procedures and are leaders in their field. The benefits of having your surgery at one of our state-of-the-art clinics include:
Our process involves a unique pain management protocol, using long-acting local anesthetic and regional anesthesia to reduce the need to manage pain with opioids.
Your surgery will be performed with a long-acting local anesthetic, Exparel, that lasts much longer, keeping you comfortable after surgery is complete. Most patients require only a few days or a week on painkillers, and those with medication sensitivities are often fine with just taking Tylenol to manage post-operative pain.
You will be able to walk on your knee within 30 to 45 minutes after your surgery is completed and be discharged just a few hours later.
You can immediately get back to living an active life, walking unassisted (no walker) in two to five days, and back to your normal (low impact) activities, such as hiking, swimming, or biking within three to five weeks. Please note every patient is different; some will heal more quickly, while others require more time.
Rather than having to attend physical therapy appointments, we offer a self-directed physical therapy treatment program through a customized tablet app.
Your self-directed program of recovery is simpler, faster, and customized to your individual progress.
Amongst the most educated and highly-recommended knee specialists in Los Angeles.

Nanoknee and its Surgery Center Partners want to let our patients know what steps we are taking to help minimize exposure to COVID-19
Is it safe to undergo outpatient surgery during this outbreak?
Yes, in fact the surgery center is one of the safest places to be. All of the centers practice extreme hygiene, the staff use protective equipment (masks, gloves, gowns, etc), and we limit waiting room occupancy to allow for extreme social distancing.
Furthermore, we are actively screening all patients and family members prior to surgery. We are also reducing any unnecessary contact by limiting the waiting room to only a few family members at a time. The surgery centers employs the most up to date infection control practices, and the operating rooms are sterile environments.
Avoiding crowds and the hospital are important measures everyone should take. After surgery all patients get to recover in the comfort of their own home. We can arrange for a nurse to visit you at home to help with any additional care. We can coordinate the majority of your follow-up care remotely.
Should I reschedule my procedure?
We currently do not recommend rescheduling or postponing your procedure. Outpatient surgery is extremely safe, and the current COVID-19 outbreak has not changed our ability to provide the highest level of care. However, any patients that have developed recent respiratory symptoms or fevers will be asked to reschedule their procedures. Delaying your procedure now could potentially mean a significant delay in the future.
All procedures have time-limited authorizations. You could be required to undergo a new consultation with your surgeon, which would effectively move patients to the back of the line. We expect a glut of consults and surgeries following the end of the COVID-19 outbreak, and thus surgery dates could be significantly delayed. With most people encouraged to stay at home this is the optimal time for an outpatient surgery.
