Would you rather recover from your total knee replacement surgery in the comfort of your own home? As long as you are a patient who qualifies for outpatient treatment, you can. If you are relatively healthy and maintain a BMI that is under what is medically considered morbidly obese, you are already a good candidate for outpatient knee surgery!
Once you have left the hospital after your surgery, you will still receive regular and excellent care and support. For one to two weeks a home nurse and physical therapist will be scheduled to visit your home each day to assist you in your efforts to heal and strengthen your new knee. After, you are welcome to transition to an outpatient physical therapy clinic.
