Total Knee Arthroplasty
Keys to a Successful Outcome
Do not overload the surgical leg with excessive walking or weight-bearing soon after surgery. Slowly increase weight-bearing and walking distance, as tolerated.
Wear the brace at all times for the first 6 weeks.
Monitor for any signs of infections such as: redness, itchiness or warmth.
*Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) for quads if poor quad contraction is present.
