Adapting to a new knee: What matters to patients undergoing total knee replacement?
Satisfaction rates with total knee replacement, while high, are not high enough, and it is not entirely clear why. This qualitative study interviewed patients three years following knee replacement surgery. They told us that what mattered to them was the ease of adapting to their new knee, and ultimately if the knee felt and worked the way they’d expected it would as they went into surgery.
