Knee Surgery Specialists in Orange County


Dr. Cheng,

I'm Gloria and I'm in Fullerton.  I just had knee surgery about a week ago. I had an ACL
Reconstruction using a hamstring graft vs. a patella graft. Have you seen a difference
between these two grafts for your knee surgery patients?

Gloria,

I see a lot of knee surgery patients and I can honestly tell you that I haven't really seen a
significant difference between the two grafts. I do notice that the hamstring graft patients
heal a lot quicker than the patella graft patients. However, knee surgery is a complex
surgery so everyone heals differently. A lot of factors are involved from your age, fitness
level, weight, scar tissue development, immune system, just to name a few. The best
thing to do is to make sure you follow the therapist's instructions closely and communicate
with your doctor frequently.  If you have specific questions, please give us a call.

Dr. Cheng,

My name is Dan and I'm in Buena Park. I'm scheduled for knee surgery in a month, I
tore my medial meniscus so they're going to do a meniscus surgery. What can I expect
after my knee surgery as far as walking and moving around is concerned?

Dan,

After your knee surgery, you'll probably be in bed most of the time for the first 48 hours.
Your knee will be swollen and tender to the touch, this is the time you'll need to have your
pain medications nearby. You'll need them. Try not to move around too much during this
time because it'll only irritate your knee surgery. You can elevate your foot to help the
swelling but it's just going to take time. Most of my patients will start seeing me at the two
week mark. For this type of knee surgery, you can expect to be in physical therapy for at
least two months.  If you have any more questions, please give me a call.
