Consultant orthopaedic and knee surgeon, Mr Nadim Aslam, at The Droitwich Spa Hospital and The Priory Hospital responds to your most frequently asked questions about knee replacement surgery, including what the procedure involves and its recovery timeline.
You must also keep your wound clean. It is important that you avoid removing or soaking the dressing. You should also wear the stockings provided by your consultant every day and night for six weeks. They will encourage the early movement of your calf to reduce your risk of developing a blood clot.
Your recovery also depends on a few other factors, including how active you were before your surgery, your age, any pre-existing medical conditions, and other health and lifestyle factors.
Partial knee replacement surgery is associated with less pain and an enhanced recovery. A partial knee replacement is also better at preserving a range of motion and function in your knee as it preserves healthy tissue and bone in your knee.
