In brief: Physical Therapy

A good physical therapy program focusing on soft tissue mobilization and muscle strengthening from the feet through the core really helps improve the outcomes of joint replacement.

In brief: Depends

First, you should be assessed by your orthopaedic surgeon to help identify the problem. Reasons for your problem can include patient factors such as inadequate therapy due to poor pain control or surgeon factors such as inappropriate sizing or malpositioning of the inplants.
Infection can also cause knee pain. Anterior knee numbness is expected due to the incision location.
