What is involved with the preoperative evaluation for knee replacement?

  • At Jyoti Nursing Home before going for a surgery, the joints adjoining the diseased knee (hip and ankle) are carefully evaluated. This is important to make certain optimal outcome and recovery from the surgery.
  • In addition, all medications that the patient is taking are reviewed. Blood-thinning medications may have to be adjusted or discontinued prior to surgery.
  • Routine blood tests of liver and kidney function and urine tests are evaluated for signs of anemia, infection, or abnormal metabolism.
  • Chest X-ray and EKG are performed to exclude significant heart and lung disease that may prohibit surgery or anesthesia.
  • Finally, a knee replacement surgery is less likely to have good long-term outcome if the patient’s weight is greater than 200 pounds or 90 kgs. Excess body weight simply puts the replaced knee joint at an increased risk of loosening and/or dislocation and delays recovery time.

Staying active can strengthen the muscles around your knee and will aid your recovery. Continue exercising such as walking and swimming in the weeks and months before your operation. You can be referred to a physiotherapist, who will give you helpful exercises.

How is the recovery after knee replacement surgery?

Knee replacement surgery mostly requires 1 ½ to 3 hours of operative time. Immediately after surgery, patient is taken to a recovery room, where vital organs are frequently monitored. After being stabilized, patient is returned to his/her hospital room.

Urination can be difficult in the immediate postoperative period, and this can be aggravated by pain medications, to avoid such condition a catheter is inserted into the urethra allowing free passage of urine until the patient becomes more mobile.

You’ll usually be hospitalized for three to five days after Knee Replacement Surgery, but recovery time can vary depending on the individual and type of surgery carried out.

Many people can stop using walking aids within six weeks after surgery, and can start driving after eight to 12 weeks.

Full recovery can take up to 2 years. A very small amount of people will continue to experience some pain even after two years.

Does patient continue to improve as an outpatient after discharge from the hospital with recommended exercises?

For an ideal result after knee replacement surgery at Jyoti Nursing Home, it is important to opt for an outpatient physical-therapy program along with home exercises. Patients need to continue exercising the muscles around the replaced joint to prevent scarring and maintain muscle strength for the purposes of stability of new joint. These exercises after surgery will reduce recovery time and lead to maximum strength and stability.

Sports activities like running is avoided in favor of leisure sports such as golf and swimming.

Swimming improves muscle strength and endurance without exerting any pressure or stress on the replaced joint.
