Satisfaction after Knee Replacement?

Robotic Knee Replacement – Satisfaction after Surgery

Robotic knee replacement enables accurate cuts / placement of your knee replacement however it is only a small factor when considering satisfaction after knee replacement. Many factors can influence pain relief, function and how successful you perceive your knee replacement surgery. A great publication has recently been released by Perth based Physiotherapists, Prof Peter O’Sullivan and Nardia Klem looking at factors that result in happy patients post knee replacement surgery. A brief summary shows that happy knee replacement patients

  • Perceive that their surgery will be successful
  • Don’t compare themselves too harshly compared to others that have had knee replacement
  • Are realistic about the improvement that knee replacement can give
  • Don’t focus on pain and embrace an attitude that ‘it will be ok’
