Home Care

HSHS Home Health provides medical, physical therapy and occupational therapy services throughout your recovery period. An RN will visit the same-day total knee replacement patient's home the morning after the surgery and follows up once a week.

Patients receive physical therapy in the home two to three times a week until the patient see his or her surgeon for a follow-up visit. Patients will also receive occupational therapy the first week post surgery. These therapists will also help with any additional equipment needs.

Once the patient has been cleared by the surgeon, he or she will begin outpatient physical therapy and be discharged from home care.
