How long does it take to recover from a knee replacement?

According to the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS), it can take up to 3 months to recover completely from a knee replacement surgical procedure.

Many patients report 4 to 6 months or up to an entire year to have fully recovered and realized total benefits of knee replacement surgery.

Patients can normally drive again after 4 to 6 weeks, and return to work after 6 to 8 weeks.

Physical Therapy can help you recover better and faster, and significantly reduce the risk of future complications.
