Yes you need to understand that this is not a disease per say that can be treated by medications. Its degeneration of joints. If there is gross limitation of daily activities you should blindly go ahead with knee replacement. It will relieve pain, correct deformity and make her mobile. You can consult me further through in clinic or video consultation
