In brief: TKA

Usually 6-12 weeks, then a home exercise program to maintain motion & strength.

In brief: Tree to four months

All depend on the surgery itself and how complicated it was(the surgery)a simple non complicated total knee should be well healed in about tree to four months with the proper reha protocol.
Complicated total knees reconstructions, such as bone graft, ligaments realesaes, very deformed knees with augmentation are a lot different and need differents protocolss with longer periods to heal.
