Important Tips and Tricks Regarding your Total Knee Replacement Surgery
Total knee replacements are common with more than 600,000 procedures performed each year in the United States. Hospitals and doctors have been great about educating patients regarding their surgery before and after the procedure occurs. However, patients still have questions about their total knee replacement surgery and how to perform everyday tasks. Questions such as “What exactly was done in my knee?” “What is the best position to sleep at night?” “What is the best way to go up and down stairs with a cane?” “Which exercises are best to perform right after the surgery?” Patients may have forgotten what was told to them, lost the paper education sheet given to them or just need reinforcement regarding techniques that were taught to them.
