Dr. Stone says ...

I am an orthopedic surgeon, clinician scientist, inventor and founder of multiple companies. I divide my life between clinical practice, nonprofit research and for-profit research. My clinical and research focus is on biologic joint repair and regeneration for the knee, shoulder and ankle to keep injured people and people with arthritis active. I have been fortunate to rebuild world-class Olympic athletes and weekend warriors and have learned from each person that injuries are opportunities to improve yourself. The best recoveries come from those who see themselves when injured as athletes in training and not patients in rehab.

If you have severe knee pain or chronic knee inflammation and swelling which cannot be improved by minor surgery or physical therapy, a doctor may recommend that you have total knee replacement surgery.
An injury is an opportunity to spot other related problems
True that you've been injured. True the injury is repaired. But there are other related things to bear in mind if you want to enjoy a full recovery.
Rest well
Rest in peace. Often said at the wrong time in life it seems. Ever notice how our drive, our sports, our busy lives, our multitasking makes our rest turbulent? Sleep is fitful. Naps are rare. Even yoga has become a multitasking athletic triathlon.
