Myths And Facts About Knee Replacement Surgery

Knees get worse due to joint swelling, constant pain, and injury. When the problem related to the knees increases in the patient, then the doctor recommends surgery for its diagnosis. 

Myth 1: Knee surgery is not successful

One of the most popular myths about knee surgery is that it is not successful. It is widely spread among people that the success rate of knee surgery or knee transplant surgery is very low. While in reality, this is not the case, the success of knee surgery depends on each patient's condition. The success of knee transplant surgery depends on the patient's care, diet, and physiotherapy after successful surgery.

Myth 2: Patients do not recover quickly after surgery

This myth is very prevalent about knee surgery that the patient does not recover quickly after this. The patient's recovery rate after knee transplant surgery is generally moderate and depends on the individual patient's internal health conditions. Although the patient recovers 12 to 14 days after surgery, some patients may take longer than this. Overall, it can be said that the patient recovers after knee surgery as well as recovers after normal surgery.

Myth 3: Knee surgery cannot be done at an older age

There is no age limit for knee surgery. Elderly patients can also undergo knee replacement surgery if they are medically fit.

Myth 4: Knee surgery lasts only 5 to 7 years

Many people believe that knee transplant surgery does not last long, although it is not so at all. The age of knee replacement surgery depends on the joint and the surgery procedure. Usually, this surgery lasts for 15 to 20 years.

Myth 5: The patient's discomfort may increase after surgery

It is not necessary that every patient recovers completely after surgery. This is because knee surgery affects the patient's physical condition and post-surgery care. But usually, after knee surgery, the patient's problems are reduced to a great extent.

Myth 6: Long hospital stay after surgery

The patient may need to stay in the hospital for 2 to 3 days after surgery, but in some patients, their conditions may require them to stay in the hospital for up to a week.
