1 doctor agrees

In brief: Scope:1-4, tkr-4-16w

And needs to be done by physical therapy experts in this area, either in an inpatient setting (if there are 'co-morbidities'--other significant medical probs defined by insurance company), subacute rehab centers, or intense outpatient therapy.
Whichever setting, it should start quickly after surgery, be done 2-3 times a day, and always be under direct or indirect guidance of a rehab department.

In brief: Scope vs TKA

Depends what's done with scope: 4-6 weeks in general, longer for an acl.
Tka: 6-12 weeks in general.
