Getting in shape prior to surgery can make recovery easier. 50% of outcome success is due to the surgeon, and the other 50% is due to the patient’s commitment to recovery, starting with pre-hab. Rehabilitation is an exercise and therapy program performed for up to 3 months after surgery. Prehab is an exercise therapy program started at least 6 weeks before surgery.

The rewards of prehab show in 24 hours after surgery. After knee-replacement surgery, patients are expected to be walking using crutches or a walker to the bathroom or in the hallway the day after. They generally must be able to go up and down 2-4 steps and walk 50 to 100 feet before leaving the hospital, usually in 3-5 days). The improved strength that people gain from prehab can help them achieve some of those milestones in less time.
