In brief: Up to one year

The knee keeps healing after surgery for an extended period of time.
Most patients return to normal activity in 6-12 weeks. For the knee to feel completely improved may take up to one year.

In brief: About 10-12 weeks

Complete recovery after a knee replacement takes on the average a full year to reach max.
Improvement. 70-75% of this usually happens in the first 8-12 weeks.
