Knee replacement surgery can end chronic pain and restore mobility, but many patients wonder what to expect during the recovery period. Your orthopedic surgeon will work closely with you before and after surgery to ensure that you are comfortable throughout the process. This video explains more about what to expect.
After surgery, pain is the central concern most patients have. Some discomfort is normal, but your orthopedic surgeon will provide medications to manage your pain as needed. Many people feel relief after surgery because the pain associated with their knee injury is gone. As you heal, you will need physical therapy to regain your strength as you return to your normal activities.
