What is #ThisIsMyKnee really all about? Hear from the 10 patients who inspired it all - as they show off their knees.
Knee replacement surgery can be a significant step toward a more active lifestyle, even if that just means getting back to a lifestyle you once enjoyed. However, since you are replacing something in your body, it is easy enough to be overwhelmed and forget to ask some important questions about the surgery, recovery time, and what to expect in the future.
If you and your surgeon have decided that knee replacement surgery is right for you, you are not alone – surgeons perform over 650,000 knee replacements each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). After performing millions of these procedures over the years, health professionals have come up with suggestions on what you can do prior to surgery to get the most out of your knee replacement.
