Knee Pre-Surgical Videos
Watch the post-operative instruction videos below prior to your knee surgery at the MGH Orthopaedic Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) in Waltham. The videos contain information about recovering from your surgery and any equipment you will need to use at home.
If you have any questions about what you see on the video(s), we will be happy to answer your questions when you arrive at the ASC on your day of surgery. These videos will help you prepare for your discharge home and act as a resource after you are home.
