After Knee Replacement Surgery your Orthopedic Surgeon will suggest a Rehabilitation Facility or a Medicare Certified Home Health Agency for Physical and Occupational Therapy to insure the best surgical outcomes. Recovery time can vary for each individual but is usually around 6 weeks. If you chose to go home but have still not fully recovered, DiMi Nursing can provide caregivers who will assist you during that transition phase. Should you chose to go to a Rehabilitation Facility, DiMi caregivers can also provide additional one to one assistance at the facility.
