The Operation: Introduction, Technique and Aftercare

  • Richard S. Laskin


Over the past 10 years, we have, in my unit, evolved a system of management for patients needing knee replacement. This system includes a standardised method of performing the surgery as well as standardised pre-operative and post-operative evaluation. Much of this evaluation has been simplified through the use of computers.
