Total Joint Arthroplasty: Surgical and Rehab Research and FAQs


Current projections forecast an increase in total hip arthroplasty (THA) procedures of 176 percent by 2040 and 659 percent by 2060, along with an estimated increase for total knee arthroplasty (TKA) projected to be 139 percent by 2040 and 469 percent by 2060.*

The rise in joint replacement same-day
surgery, coupled with advances in cutting-edge pain management and surgical techniques such as robotics and computer-assisted surgery, means that rehab practitioners must be educated about joint replacement surgeries and must practice at the highest level of their licenses. The question for us as practitioners is: Are we educationally ready to provide current and progressive rehabilitation for the rising joint replacement population?

Today’s patient is quite different from the traditional patient many of us learned about in school. We learned precautions and restrictions, with the goal of rehabilitating patients so they could dress, groom themselves, and perform self-care. Today the rehab practitioner’s role has changed, and the Baby Boomer joint replacement patient has higher expectations of their rehabilitation provider. Today’s active Baby Boomer patients want to use their “new and bionic” prostheses to get down on the floor and play with the grandkids, to ski, and to hike.

This highly interactive webinar will provide the attendee with the evidence-based knowledge to answer patient questions such as: Do I have any hip precautions? Can I kneel on my total knee? Can I run? When can I hike or play tennis again? We will also examine surgery, from traditional to cutting-edge, in addition to evidence-based rehab and return-to-activity guidelines. This one-of-a-kind webinar is a MUST for all practitioners who work with total joint patients.
