Total Knee Replacement Surgery
Knee replacement surgery is a safe and effective procedure to get rid of the pain in the knee joint. It is recommended when non-surgical treatments fail to offer relief. The surgery is performed to treat a range of problems including chronic pain in the knees, correcting leg deformity, restore mobility and aid in regaining the power to perform day to day activities. At Eva Hospital, we recommend knee replacement surgery to patients dealing with severe Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis, Post-traumatic arthritis, and other leg deformity cases.
Timeline of Recovery After Knee Replacement Surgery
The recovery from knee replacement surgery depends on a range of factors including the will power of the patient. Usually, it takes 12 weeks to recover from the surgery. The recovery is slow and gradual but has miraculous results as you may feel no pain and abnormality while performing your day to day functions, which were a task before. The doctor would advise you to start walking immediately after you regain your consciousness after the surgery. You will be offered an assistive device for support to walk at first. Regular physiotherapy will be offered to you to ensure your replaced knee gains strength and mobility in due time. Usually, the patients are discharged on the 3-4 day after the surgery. The doctors will recommend you a physiotherapy plan and ask you to come for follow-up checkups in due intervals.
