Before you leave the hospital after knee replacement surgery, your doctor will recommend special equipment that will help you recover. Your equipment may include:
- A walker.
- TED (thrombo embolic deterrent) hose (elastic stockings used to help prevent blood clots in your legs)
- A CPM (continuous passive motion) machine is occasionally used.
A social worker will also meet with you to discuss services you might need after you leave. These services may include home care or nursing services.
