Quadriceps Exercises- Lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core Strengthening Exercise- Straight Leg Raised With Toes Turned Outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams Stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. repeat 10 times, twice a day.

The surgery takes only 2-3 days along with the hospital stay and then the Physiotherapy treatment is the most important part which takes almost 3months for regular treatment and exercises to get complete muscle strength +co-ordination +balance+range of motion and the right gait..The requirement to visit a doctor will be almost 3-4 times after the hospital discharge.
