Dr. O'Connor explains when a woman will start walking after her knee replacement surgery.

Dr. O'Connor:
You are not going to be off your feet very long after knee replacement surgery because we are going to get you up that day and at least walking the day after or maybe even the afternoon of your surgery if you had your surgery early in the morning. So we get people up and get them moving and get them going because that’s all really important in terms of their rehab and their recovery.
