Strength: Although most pts are limited with pain prior to a tka, doing excercises to build-up your quads will help. This can be straight leg raises and wall sits. Practice using a cane or crutches as well. Building up your iron stores with a MVI (multivitamin) or eating greens will help limit any affects of postop anemia.

Medical clearance: You will also need medical clearance from your primary care provider within one month of the surgery and it is recommended to see your dentist for a routine check within 6 months of the planned procedure.
