New Options In Knee Replacement Surgery
Date:6/20/2012

surgical techniques, one of the key areas of advancement has been a greater ability to align the prosthetic components and balance the ligaments properly, added White. "Research is now underway that may bring us electronic sensors to further help balance the knees," he added. "Certainly, advances in pain control over the past decade have helped total knee replacement patients considerably."  

Patients considering knee replacement surgery may prepare by losing weight or doing certain exercises to strengthen the lower extremity muscles. The average hospital stay is three days, although a patient can usually take a few steps with a walker or crutches on the first day after surgery. A cane or a crutch will generally be used for three to six weeks, according to White. Low-impact activities like ballroom dancing, golf, swimming, bicycling, doubles tennis or bowling are allowed after recovery.

"People who have undergone knee replacement should basically return to their normal activities of daily living with the exception of impact sports," White said. "Overall, the outcomes for people who have undergone knee replacement have been excellent."
