One of the most effective medical treatments is knee replacement surgery, which involves replacing a poorly damaged knee surface with a metal implant. They’ve become more widespread as a result of enhanced implants, surgical expertise, and cutting-edge technologies. 

In this blog, you can anticipate a detailed discussion of all the pre-surgical and post-surgery preventive measures you should consider before and after knee replacement surgery.

Pre-Operative Measures:

A knee replacement surgery requires you to make certain lifestyle changes. 

The three most important aspects of one’s lifestyle to change are as follows: 

  • Changes to the home setup that are necessary must be introduced. 
  • For easy access to the commode, toilet seats should be raised and armrests should be placed.
  • Exercising before surgery will strengthen your muscles, increase your endurance, and assist in keeping your joints working.

Post-Operative Measures:

Care Measures are critical for a successful recovery after you’ve had the replacement surgery. The following are important measures to take: 

  • The post-surgical course includes pain and swelling in the operated limb. Prescribed drugs can be taken as advised by your physician.
  • Regular physiotherapy with a professional physiotherapist is a must to strengthen the knee. Regular physiotherapy will help your knees regain their agility and make it possible for you to resume your regular activities, including floor sitting. 
  • You should keep your wound dry until the staples are removed, which should take about 2 weeks.

Despite all of these precautions taken prior to and after surgery, a list of these activities should be considered for the rehabilitation process.
