“Getting a Good Night’s Sleep” Popular on AAHKS Patient Website

Since the launch of the new AAHKS website for patient education, the article Getting a Good Night’s Sleep after Hip or Knee Replacement Surgery is the most visited following the overview articles on hip and knee replacement surgery. Written and peer-reviewed by the AAHKS Patient Education Committee, the article suggests that when it’s difficult to sleep, “you should take your pain medication an hour before bed to achieve better comfort and help restore your sleep cycle. A few days off from strenuous activity or physical therapy will not inhibit your recovery, but can have a tremendous effect on your ability to fall asleep and stay asleep.” The website has a library of patient-friendly articles and videos that you can share with your patients.
