WHAT IS THE RECOVERY LIKE AFTER PARTIAL KNEE REPLACEMENT?

When you undergo a partial knee replacement, the recovery process is vital for the best outcome. After you are discharged from the hospital, you may be able to walk with the use of crutches, a walker, or a cane. However, it can be important/helpful to have someone stay with you for one to two weeks until you have more mobility. Here at Plymouth Bay Orthopedic Associates in Sandwich and Duxbury, we can help you learn how to maneuver through your recovery as safely and healthily as possible.

Physical Therapy After a Partial Knee Replacement

We are proud to provide physical therapy for our patients, especially those in post-op. Physical therapy is essential after a partial knee replacement. Through physical therapy sessions, you will be able to gradually regain mobility and strengthen the muscles around your knee. As you regain strength, it will be easier to resume your normal activities. Our professionals will give you the best advice every step of the way.

Home Care After a Partial Knee Replacement

You should get plenty of rest following the procedure. However, it is important to be mindful of and allow for good circulation. Take extreme care when moving around, and when you begin to feel better, you can carefully start to resume your normal routine. We strongly advise you to avoid any strenuous activities that put stress on your knee as it works its way back to normal. Patience and positivity are key throughout this process.
