Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
Knee replacement is a very good surgery and chances of failure are almost nil if done by an experienced surgeon. There is no risk of remain on bed as it is a myth. Most patients starts walking from 3 rd day and can be normal in 1 month.She can use stairs from 3 rd day. So go ahead with this surgery. You can take opinion from patients who has gone through this procedure.
