Knee Replacement Patient Resources
Post Knee Replacement Patient Information
Arnot Health has created a range of patient teaching resources for its knee replacement patients. These materials, which include patient teaching sheets and videos, cover topics such as post-operative restrictions, pain management, dressing changes, and exercises you can do at home.
Our goal is to ensure that your recovery is as successful as your surgery, and that you can return to activities as soon, and as safely, as possible.
