LONG TERM CARE AFTER SURGERY
If you have any problems with your knee or hip replacement, I will see you at any time for review. If it has been more than a year since seeing me it is best to check in with your family physician first as they are the gate keepers for the health care system.
If your joint replacement is working well it is still good to see me in review every ten years. This way we can repeat an x-ray and make sure that the bearing surface is adequate.
