Within the National Health Service joint replacements are not routinely followed up after a 6 week check. We believe it is advantageous to follow you up in the longer term to ensure there are no problems developing with your joint. We would normally see you again at 12 months following the surgery. If all is well at that stage it is likely your knee replacement would serve you well for many years. Intermittently we may send you questionaires (Oxford Knee Scores) to ascertain how your joint is performing. If we identify any problems we would invite you to attend for an out-patient assessment. If at any stage you feel there are problems please could you contact us and we will arrange a further assessment.
