Knee Day of Surgery

Knee Day of Surgery

 

The medical professionals at Core Orthopedics know that knee replacement surgery is a big commitment. That’s why we’re committed to ensuring there are no surprises, especially on the day of surgery. Here’s what you can expect to happen during the knee replacement surgery process:

 

  1. First, you’ll be admitted to the hospital or surgery center and you’ll complete any necessary intake paperwork/forms before you are taken back and given a room.
  2. A nurse will record your vital signs — temperature, blood pressure, heart rate, etc.
  3. You’ll be asked to change into a clean hospital gown. Your nurse will instruct you on what articles of clothing need to be removed. You might be allowed to leave on undergarments for comfortability.
  4. You’ll be asked to remove all jewelry, dentures, contact lenses, and nail polish if you haven’t done so already. We always recommend arriving at the site of your surgery with these things already removed to make your life one step simpler.
  5. You’ll be given an IV to administer fluids and medication during and after the procedure.
  6. Your knee will be scrubbed and shaved to clean the area and prepare for surgery.
  7. An anesthesiologist will discuss the type of anesthesia that will be used and administer it.
  8. Your surgeon will confirm and initial the surgical site.
  9. You will be given a sedative to help relax.
  10. You will be taken back to the OR suite
