In brief: Physical therapy

There are, of course, many different types of knee surgery performed.
Before surgery is even considering, a course of conservative or non-operative treatment including physical therapy is strongly recommended. Even if surgery is recommended, pre operative therapy can help get your knee and thigh and leg muscles in better shape- this will help you recover quicker from your surgery.
