After surgery, make sure you also do the following:
Participate in regular light exercise programs to maintain proper strength and mobility of your new knee.
Take special precautions to avoid falls and injuries. If you break a bone in your leg, you may require more surgery.
Make sure your dentist knows that you have a knee replacement. Talk with your orthopaedic surgeon about whether you need to take antibiotics prior to dental procedures.
See your orthopaedic surgeon periodically for a routine follow-up examination and x-rays. Your surgeon will talk with you about the frequency and timing of these visits.
If you feel you need a consultation regarding your knee replacement, please feel free to contact our office.
