The recovery time from a knee replacement procedure varies for each patient based on the patient’s overall health, type of procedure, and activity level prior to surgery.
When the procedure is complete and patients have returned home, they must commit to an extensive rehabilitation regimen. Over the course of six to eight weeks, joint replacement patients progress from small movements, such as stiff leg lifts, to walking greater distances.
Allowing a patient’s healthy bone, cartilage and ligaments to remain intact, a customized partial knee replacement provides patients with a more natural-feeling knee than a total knee replacement.
