According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, 90% of people who have a knee replacement experience a significant decrease in pain. If you suffer from chronic knee pain or arthritis of the knee, knee replacement surgery may improve your quality of life.
Every patient undergoing knee replacement surgery recovery responds differently during the process. Anywhere between four and seven weeks to walk with minimal assistance is considered normal. If it takes longer than that, or your quality of life is being affected by pain, talk to your doctor.
