At last Friday’s Current Controversies in Orthopaedic Enhanced Recovery, David McDonald and I were asked to present the current case for and against post-discharge physiotherapy following hip and knee replacement surgery. Here are the slides for those who requested them.

As a profession we need to better understand the type, intensity, timing and combinations of exercise training and physiotherapy interventions that are most effective at improving function quicker and to higher levels in our patients.
