The professional staff at Joint Pain Orthopedics has developed and refined an extensive protocol for the rapid recovery from knee replacement surgery and an increase in pain control.

Recovery times can vary from patient to patient, depending on their definition of “recovery,” personal rehabilitation tolerance, and patient expectations and goals. Patients are generally walking within the same day, and it typically takes only a couple of hours for knee replacement surgery patients to be up on their feet and walking with the assistance of a physical therapist.

The time it takes for knee replacement surgery patients to complete the therapy process can take anywhere from a few weeks to a couple of months.

 

Hospital Stay for Knee Replacement Surgery at Joint Pain Orthopedics

There are several factors that determine how long you will be in the hospital for knee replacement surgery, including:

  • Patient’s health status
  • Fitness level
  • Patient’s threshold for pain, rehabilitation

However, the majority of patients can expect to remain in the hospital up to a couple of days after the procedure. This allows for more effective pain management and gives the patient a solid start on therapy and reestablishing their mobility.

I can not understate how much I would recommend Dr.Jimenez. I have been to a lot of doctors for my knees. Dr. Jimenez is the best. I had Bi-lateral knee replacement on Dec 30,2019. I was up and walking on day 2. Two weeks out walking with little assistance other than a cane. Most importantly, PAIN FREE! I honestly didnt think that would ever be possible again. I would recommend him to anyone. His staff is top notch. Very friendly and professional. They made me feel comfortable and kept me informed on what to expect throughout the process. Thankyou so much Naomi,Henry and Dr.jimenez! Yall are a Godsend!read more

I chose Dr. Jimenez based on the reviews. I had my first appointment with theNurse Practitioner. He was very pleasant and explained everything to me. I am still waiting for an appointment to get injections in both knees. The issue is with the Medical Assistant,Naomi. I talked with her personally and was told she hasn’t had time to get approval. I am inclined to go to a different Doctor just because of her attitude. She literally said she is only one person and injections weren’t a priority. I hope the Dr. And Nurse Practioner are aware that she is running patients off.read more
