Knee surgery is done on patients that have damaged or worn knees. As a result this causes the patient pain and /or can affect their mobility. There are different options available to patients that need knee surgery today. Some patients need complete knee replacements while others just need knee resurfacing. Either way most likely after knee surgery you will be in recovery for some time.
Post rehabilitation after knee surgery can be a long process because you have to reteach your knee to work with the rest of your body. In most situations patients can go home after a few days in the hospital. However, if patients do not have an adequate support system at home they either have to stay in the hospital longer or go to a rehabilitation center.
That is where our caregivers come in. We provide in home caregiving services to patients after all types of surgeries including knee surgery. The American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons states that it can take up to 3 months to fully recover after a knee replacement. This recovery could take longer if you do not have the proper support system along the way.
