My Knee Guide app review: a comprehensive resource for patients of knee surgery

Reviews

Introduction

This is a fantastic app for learning all about the knee and what will be involved should you decide to undergo surgery. With a wealth of educational material, personal knee replacement stories, and a base of contacts, My Knee Guide contains everything you could possibly, well, kneed!

The best first aid apps for iPhone and iPad

This is clearly a very professionally and expertly developed app which contains a very impressive amount of specialized information. If you’re currently trying to decide whether or not knee surgery is the right course of action for you, I’d definitely recommend reading through some of the material on here.

The Patellapp

Once you’ve gone through the initial registration process and you’re ready to start using My Knee Guide, the first thing you’ll come across is the Learning Center section.

The Learning Center contains a wealth of information that will help you to learn all you need to know about pre- and post-op recommendations, non-surgical options, checklists of what you should do before undergoing surgery, and lots of anatomical and general information about the knee itself.

The My Surgery section is definitely worth taking a look at as it enables you to input the day of your surgery, as well as pre- and post-operative visits with your surgeon. Once you’ve put some dates in you can view them in a calendar or list view that will provide recommendations for things you should do on certain days prior to and following your operation.

 

On a Kneed-to-Know Basis

If you’re in a position where you’re not currently sure if knee replacement is the right option for you, or you’ve decided but are experiencing a lot of anxiety and apprehension at the prospect of going under, the Stories section is definitely something you’ll want to look at.

In this section you’ll find stories under two subcategories which are “I decided to have my knee replaced when,” and “How my life changed after knee replacement.” These should give you a more thorough understanding of what has led other people to the crossroads you now find yourself at.

Finally, the Contacts section is where you’ll find loads of details for your local hospital, as well as information on your orthopedic surgeon, Home Health care agency, pharmacy, and much more, so you’ll never be stuck for who to call in any situation.
