Post-Operative Care

It’s important to know what you can expect after your surgery is over and you head home. Follow the care plan your doctor prepares for you. Make sure you understand everything you’re expected to do in order to help ensure your rehabilitation goes smoothly.

Possible complications



The performance of knee replacements depends on age, weight, activity level, and other factors. There are potential risks and recovery takes time. People with conditions limiting rehabilitation  should not have this surgery. Only an orthopaedic surgeon can tell if knee replacement is right for you.
