When can I shower after my knee surgery?

For knee arthroscopy patients, you can shower 2 days after surgery once you remove your bandages.

Patients who had a total knee replacement may shower the day after surgery; however, most people will require assistance getting in and out of the shower.

If you had either of the above procedures, please avoid submerging your knee in water (i.e. bathtub, pool, Jacuzzi) until after your sutures/bandages are removed in the office at your first post operative appointment.
