Our usual length of stay after knee arthroplasty is 2 days.

Alan:

That is impressive.....just 2 days and the same article suggests an average joint durability of 20 years before another revision.......also impressive.

But keep in mind that recently we learned that Mako does in fact intend to cannibalize these total knee replacements. It seems they are strategizing not just partial knees which are apparently not a well regarded procedure by orthopedic doctors but instead, they claim, that these total knees have a substantial % that could instead have a Mako.

That is, they believe that this won't be a situation as one poster claimed, that they would need to talk an early diseased knee patient to go under the knife but rather that these total knee replacements don't really need totals........at least many of them.
