FAQs Related to Knee replacement - Bilateral

Is bilateral knee replacement done simultaneously or in separate surgeries?

It can be done either simultaneously (both knees in one surgery) or in separate surgeries, typically a few days to weeks apart. The approach depends on the patient's health, surgeon's recommendation, and other factors.

What is the recovery process like after bilateral knee replacement? 

Recovery involves physical therapy, pain management, and gradual resumption of activities. Initially, patients may need walking aids, but over time, mobility improves.

How long does the rehabilitation process take? 

Rehabilitation duration varies, but patients can typically return to light activities within a few weeks and resume normal activities within a few months. Full recovery may take several months.

Are there risks associated with bilateral knee replacement? 

As with any surgery, there are risks such as infection, blood clots, and adverse reactions to anesthesia. Discussing potential risks with the surgeon is crucial.

What materials are used for knee implants? 

Common materials include metal alloys, high-grade plastics, and polymers. Your surgeon will recommend the most suitable implant based on your specific needs.

How long do knee implants last?

The longevity of knee implants varies, but many can last 15-20 years or more with proper care and lifestyle adjustments.

Can I resume sports after bilateral knee replacement?

Low-impact activities like swimming and walking are generally encouraged. High-impact activities may need to be limited to avoid implant wear.

What lifestyle changes are recommended post-surgery? 

Maintaining a healthy weight, regular exercise, and following the surgeon's advice on activities are crucial for long-term success.
