After Knee Replacement: Keeping Your Knee Healthy


Welcome to our health education library. The information shared below is provided to you as an educational and informational source only and is not intended to replace a medical examination or consultation, or medical advice given to you by a physician or medical professional.

You can keep your knee healthy by knowing the right moves and avoiding the wrong ones. Some activities could harm your artificial knee and may be permanently restricted.


 Position your knee comfortably as you go about daily activities.

 Continue to exercise and walk every day.

 Use an ice pack if your knee begins to swell or feel tender.


 Avoid twisting your knee. Turn your entire body instead.

 Avoid jumping. It could loosen your new knee joint.

 Avoid forced movements, such as bending your knee too far.

Follow-up Care

Your orthopaedic surgeon will schedule follow-up exams to make sure that your knee is healing correctly. Use this time to ask any questions you have about your recovery or activities.
