5,000+ Happy Customers Can't Be Wrong

I recently had a TKR and my therapists and doctor are amazed at my rate of recovery and the degrees of flexion I have gained in such a short amount of time. The credit goes to Ms. Stiles and her approach to TKR recovery. I read Fast Track Your Recovery From A Total Knee Replacement prior to my surgery and had in place all the tools I would need after surgery.

I'm a 71 yo male into my second post-operative week after a TKR, and I couldn't be more pleased with this book and Michele's guidance. Her strong advice that one focus on range of motion during weeks 1 and 2 had worked out perfectly for me, so much so that on day 11 I have no pain, am off medications except 1x 650 mg acetaminophen before bed, and am walking for 10 minutes twice a day unaided on a treadmill.

My second knee replacement seemed miraculous because of this book. Knee replacement #1 was a disaster. I went in to a rehab post op 3 days with a flexion of 103. I came out, three weeks later at 60. I followed their directions.  This time I trusted my experience and the program outlined in the book and my recovery is just as Michelle describes. No rehab. My out patient PT says Im weeks ahead and loves the fast track method.

This is an excellent primer for the individual considering total knee replacement surgery and the rehabilitation thereafter. It is written in layman's terms in a simple and direct format. As a physical therapist with 29 years of experience treating hundreds of patients who have undergone this surgery, I completely agree with the principles that Ms. Stiles espouses.
