Knee replacement surgery

Knee replacement surgery

Knee replacement surgery involves the removal of a damaged knee joint and its replacement with an artificial joint. At Schoen Clinic London, our highly qualified consultant orthopaedic surgeons regularly perform this procedure in our world-class private hospital.

What is the recovery and rehabilitation time after your private knee replacement?

Knee replacement surgery is a major operation, so it will take some time to recover. The average length of stay in hospital following this type of surgery is two to three days and the wound will take about two weeks to heal. If you recover well, you can return to normal activities within six weeks. Full recovery takes between nine and 12 months.

We offer rapid recovery options at Schoen Clinic London − speak to your surgeon to find out more.

During your stay at Schoen Clinic London, a physiotherapist will give you some exercises to support your new knee joint. They’ll also help you to get out of bed and start mobilising with the support of a frame. Our team of leading physiotherapists will give you helpful advice for moving around and performing various activities safely as soon as you’re out of theatre.
