Medical and surgical management of knee pain in juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is rapidly evolving. It is important for the orthopaedic surgeon to remain informed. In this review, we discuss the recent trends in the surgical management of JIA in light of recent medical advances for the disease. The purpose of this article is to summarize current recommendations for TKA in patients with JIA.
