In a nutshell: Uncomplicated total knee arthroplasty patients were randomized to receive either 10 days of hospital inpatient rehabilitation followed by an 8-week clinician-monitored home-based program or the home-based program alone, plus there was an observational group which included only the home-based program. Concluded that the use of inpatient rehabilitation compared with a monitored home-based program did not improve mobility at 26 weeks after surgery for this type of patient.
