At your pre-operative appointment, you will complete a questionnaire. You will also receive your post-operative pain medication prescriptions. At the time of surgery, you will begin a pain diary to document your use of pain medication for 6 weeks. You will also keep track of when you were first able to walk without assistive device (i.e. crutch, walker, etc.). In the recovery room, you will tell us your pain level at 15 minutes after surgery and before discharge. At your 3-month post-operative visit, you will complete another questionnaire to tell us about your knee pain and function. At your 6-month post-operative visit, you will complete a questionnaire to tell us about your knee function.
