Physiotherapy after knee replacement surgery

Effective postoperative rehabilitation

Almost 10,000 knee replacement surgeries (aka knee arthroplasty) are performed in Finland every year. More and more patients are under the age of 65, which means that many of those undergoing surgery are still facing a return to work life.
