  • Welcome To The
    Knee-Replacement Decision Aid
    Surgery may or may not be the right choice for you. Only careful discussion and thought can help you decide whether to have surgery.
    Your doctor may recommend knee replacement when:
    • Your pain from knee arthritis limits what you are able to do
    • Your knee pain has not improved with other treatment
    • You understand what surgery and recovery after surgery will be like

    This Decision Aid will lead you through three steps, in three different sections. Some of these steps will begin with a few questions. You can then read and learn about knee-replacement or surgery, based on the answers you have given.

    You may print out your personal report and bring it to your health care provider, if you wish.

  • Welcome To The
    Getting Ready For Surgery
    After you decide to have knee-replacement surgery, you will need to take certain steps to help make your surgery and recovery go well.

    You are likely receiving help and advice from different health care providers. However, it's important for you to make sure that:
    • You are as healthy as possible before surgery.
    • You know what you need to do the night before and the morning of your surgery.
    • All the arrangements for your care after surgery have been made.
    • Your insurance company or Medicare covers and will pay for the care you need.
    Your answers to these questions will be used to decide what your next steps are.

    You may print out your personal report and bring it to your health care provider, if you wish.
