Preoperative orientation
Most patients will be asked to donate 1 to 2
pints of their own blood in the weeks preceding
knee replacement surgery. This helps reduce the
need for a blood transfusion from our blood bank.
Almost all of the patients will receive the
donated blood as a transfusion after surgery.
Rarely, an additional transfusion is necessary
from our blood bank. The blood from the blood
bank is carefully screened to the best of our
ability to detect any infectious diseases.

You will be asked to see a medical doctor at HSS
prior to your surgery. This is a precaution to
make certain that you are healthy enough to
undergo knee replacement surgery. In the course
of this workup, you may be asked to have
additional testing to examine your heart and lung
function. After your surgery, this medical doctor
will see you in the hospital.
Postoperative course
Immediately after total knee replacement surgery,
you will be in the recovery room. Most patients
are able to go to a regular room after a few
hours, when the sensation returns in your legs.
You will be given a pain pump connected to your
epidural catheter which will allow you to control
when you are given pain medicine. Most people are
quite comfortable with the pain pump in place.
4
On the day of surgery, you may do some of the
exercises as instructed by your physical
therapist, including quadriceps contractions and
moving the feet up and down. Depending on your
surgeon's preference, you may begin bending your
new knee right after surgery, or on the first day
after surgery. You will be allowed to take some
ice chips after surgery to wet your mouth, but
drinking liquids or eating may cause you to
become nauseated. You will have a catheter in
your bladder so that you do not have to worry
about urinating. Once you regain the movement in
your feet, you may be allowed to sit up, stand,
and take a few steps with the assistance of a
walker and a therapist.
5
The first day after surgery will be an active
one, designed to help you get more mobile. You
will meet our physical therapists, who will
instruct you in more exercises to perform while
in bed. In addition, they will help stand today
and take a few steps with a walker. Generally,
you will be allowed to drink clear liquids
today. In the next few days, you will find it
easier and easier to move about. You will be
freed up from the pain and urinary catheters.
Pain medication will be given in the form of
tablets. Eventually you will progress to walking
with a cane or crutches. On the second day after
surgery, if your bowels have shown evidence of
recovery, you will be allowed to eat regular food.
6
Depending upon your age, preoperative physical
condition, and insurance coverage, you may be a
candidate for short-term placement in a
rehabilitation facility. Otherwise, you will be
discharged home and a physical therapist will
come to your house to continue rehabilitation. A
case manager will discuss these options with you
and help you plan for your eventual return home.
7
Your return to activity will be guided by your
surgeon and therapists. Generally, patients are
able to walk as much as they want by 6 weeks
postoperatively. Patients are able to resume
driving at 6 weeks. At 8 weeks, patients are able
to resume playing golf and swimming at 12 weeks,
they may play tennis. Your surgeon will help you
decide what activities you may resume.
