It is used in knee replacement preparation classes and by nurse educators. Because hospital and health care budgets are shrinking, Media Partners has decided to make the information available online. We hope it helps with tight education budgets! Media Partners, Inc.

In addition to learning about knee replacement, you can learn about knee anatomy and how to use that knowledge to understand why you had to have your knee replaced.

    It has been my experience that proper patient education prior to surgery improves participation with the rehab program after surgery. Unfortunately, even though many hospitals and surgeons provide a degree of education, something seems to be lacking once the patient begins the rehab program. Many patients seem at a loss to know what to do once they return home from the procedure and have very little understanding of how long the recovery will actually take.
    Having access to this little book of yours will benefit prospective patients and should probably be memorized prior to the procedure!
