Boxing after TKA: Qualified yes. Not likely at an elite level of competition. Kick boxing or cage fighting not recommended.

Yes: Knee replacements can provide years of pain-free activities. The more aggressive the activity, the greater chance to cause problems down the road. Think of them like tires-how you treat them will affect their lifespan. Impact activities like running will shorten their lifespan, while knee-gliding activities like skiing place less stress on them. Chose your miles carefully !
