With traditional knee replacement (or partial replacement) surgery, physical therapy was a required process. With the Nanoknee procedure, most patients will not require physical therapy. While every person is different, it is rare that one of our patients will need physical therapy following surgery, or the need to stay in a rehab center to get the new knee functioning.
Rather than needing PT, our process involves the use of a customized app for your smartphone or tablet. This app gives you 24/7 access to our professionals, and a customized set of exercises you can perform at home.
As you perform a simple set of easy exercises, the app tracks your progress to update and customize your rehab program – with exercises that are very easy to perform on your own. You need not worry about rehab or physical therapy – you will be walking, with your new knee strong and sturdy and capable of bearing all your weight, directly after surgery.
Amongst the most educated and highly-recommended knee specialists in Los Angeles.

Nanoknee and its Surgery Center Partners want to let our patients know what steps we are taking to help minimize exposure to COVID-19
Is it safe to undergo outpatient surgery during this outbreak?
Yes, in fact the surgery center is one of the safest places to be. All of the centers practice extreme hygiene, the staff use protective equipment (masks, gloves, gowns, etc), and we limit waiting room occupancy to allow for extreme social distancing.
Furthermore, we are actively screening all patients and family members prior to surgery. We are also reducing any unnecessary contact by limiting the waiting room to only a few family members at a time. The surgery centers employs the most up to date infection control practices, and the operating rooms are sterile environments.
Avoiding crowds and the hospital are important measures everyone should take. After surgery all patients get to recover in the comfort of their own home. We can arrange for a nurse to visit you at home to help with any additional care. We can coordinate the majority of your follow-up care remotely.
Should I reschedule my procedure?
We currently do not recommend rescheduling or postponing your procedure. Outpatient surgery is extremely safe, and the current COVID-19 outbreak has not changed our ability to provide the highest level of care. However, any patients that have developed recent respiratory symptoms or fevers will be asked to reschedule their procedures. Delaying your procedure now could potentially mean a significant delay in the future.
All procedures have time-limited authorizations. You could be required to undergo a new consultation with your surgeon, which would effectively move patients to the back of the line. We expect a glut of consults and surgeries following the end of the COVID-19 outbreak, and thus surgery dates could be significantly delayed. With most people encouraged to stay at home this is the optimal time for an outpatient surgery.
