Hospitalization for a knee surgery usually lasts about two to three days, after which the patient will be discharged. Outpatient or at-home physiotherapy may be needed to assist in rehabilitation after discharge from hospital. The timeframe for resuming normal activity varies with each patient based on age and overall fitness. During the rehabilitation phase, it is crucial to adhere to all recommendations for joint protection.
Typically, the first follow-up visit with the surgeon is scheduled two to three weeks post-discharge, and subsequent visits will be planned based on patient progress.
