  • 1. Time to recover
  • This is probably the most raised concern on
    medical forums related to knee replacement
    surgery . The recovery time differs from patient
    to patient based on their body type and overall
    physical conditions. However, patients are
    typically mobilised within 24 hours of surgery
    with the help of walker under the expert
    supervision of the physiotherapist. Toilet
    training like commode chair sitting is done
    within 48 hours from the surgery. Patient needs
    regular physio and walking aid for initial 3 to 4
    weeks. Typically patient is discharged within 4
    to 5 days from surgery and are allowed to travel
    to their native places with certain special
    precautions.

  • 2. Pain management techniques
  • Pain management is one of the most important
    aspects of recovery from a knee replacement
    surgery. Patients should be aware of the
    discomfort, pain, medication and everything they
    should do post-surgery. Pain management
    techniques significantly help in the recovery
    process. Epidural analgesia (in selected
    individuals) has emerged as a single most pain
    relieving factor in controlling post-operative
    pain.

    muscles and increase the range of motion to

  • 4. Other concerns
  • Traditionally, the recovery process, post a knee
    surgery has not been relatively quick, but the
    advancement of technologies like CAS (Computer
    Assisted Surgery), and Navigation based joint
    replacement have changed this scenario. Like
    every other surgery, there are risks associated
    with knee replacement surgery as well. Patients
    should be aware of the potential complications of
    the surgery and discuss the same with their
    surgeons. Although there are risks involved and
    TKR being a technically demanding procedure, knee
    replacement surgery enjoys a success rate of
    around 98 percent.
