if the knee pain affecting your mother's routine activities and no improvement with medicines then she should undergo knee replacement one knee or both knees at time..if your mother has no medical illness then though she is aged,risk factor is quite less..a week done surgery is the key to success..and your mother can spend rest of her life pain free ..if possible upload her knee xray..
