Other FAQs: How Long Do I Have to Use the Walking Aids? How Long Does a Hip or Knee Prosthesis Last? Why Does the Opposite, Respectively the Neighboring Joint Hurt? Are My Legs of Different Length Following Surgery? How Do I Motivate Myself to Work on Me for Weeks After the Operation?

Such issues and numerous other inquiries concern the patients who follow an inpatient and outpatient therapy after undergoing a prosthesis implantation (especially of an artificial hip- or knee joint). The rehabilitation measures, be it at a specialized rehabilitation clinic, an outpatient center or therapists in their practices, are not limited only to the therapeutic applications, which one experiences as a patient.

It is essential instead to clarify the unanswered questions about how to deal with the new artificial joint; to adapt the everyday life thereupon; and perhaps even to initiate far-reaching changes regarding the profession, housework, gardening, hobby, leisure time, and sports. Knowing the right handling of your prosthesis, you can contribute significantly to the overall results and improve the quality of your life.

From a decade-long experience and after treating thousands of patients, I can offer you assistance and practical tips for your most common questions. These will facilitate your transition to a happy, uncomplicated life with your new joint.

This book is a practical guide and does not replace the consultation with your doctor or your therapist.
