The surest way to do away with the growing pain of osteoarthritis (and sometimes the right choice for dealing with a knee injury) is a total knee replacement. If you're understandably concerned about making this decision, you may be surprised to learn how much the field of joint replacement has advanced in recent years.
How to Prepare for Total Knee Replacement
Prior to your total knee replacement, we will help you prepare for surgery. We’ll discuss the home health tools you may need as you recover, such as a walking aid and a bath bench. We will also familiarize you with exercises that will help you regain mobility after surgery. You will need to arrange for a friend or relative to drive you home and stay with you for several days after your procedure, or consult our staff about alternative care options.
