My Knee Guide is an interactive and comprehensive resource for patients considering and undergoing knee replacement surgery. We provide you with an unprecedented ability to customize your experience.
Simply by providing My Knee Guide a couple of key dates, a personalized and customizable list of calendar events are created. This calendar, created by an orthopaedic surgeon, will present you with timely safety notifications, education, checklists, and surgery specific reminders. This calendar will help you prepare for your surgery and will follow you all the way through your recovery. My Knee Guide utilizes push notifications or email alerts to keep you up to date. You can also sync this timeline with the internal iPhone calendar.
When you access the “Contacts” section of My Knee Guide, you will see that we go well beyond the typical physician locator. We help you find all the resources needed during knee replacement. This includes hospitals, in-patient rehabilitation facilities, home health care services, medical suppliers and more. We present surveys, ratings, and safety information about these facilities to help you compare these resources and receive the best care. You can find out: what percentage of patients recommend your local hospital, the health inspections rating for the in-patient rehabilitation you’re considering, the percentage of patients who believe their chosen home health care agency communicated well with them, along with much more.
Once you find and choose these resources, My Knee Guide will help you organize them in one central knee replacement address book. You can also customize this address book by importing and exporting from your own iPhone contacts.
The Learning center provides educational tools and references for both non-operative and operative treatment options. By utilizing conversational style text, pictures, and videos, you can get a broader understanding of the nature of knee arthritis and how an orthopaedic surgeon can help treat it. The learning center has been created with an emphasis on evidence based medicine, and real world experience.
Have you wondered how arthritis can cause the knee to become crooked or how surgery can correct this? With our unique x-ray vision center, we present animated images of real patients during their progress from arthritis through knee replacement surgery. These animations will help you visualize this process as you have never experienced before.
My knee Guide’s extensive checklists keep you organized and informed around the time of surgery. What questions should you ask when selecting an orthopaedic surgeon? What do you need to know at your pre-operative visit? Bring your iPhone to your surgeon’s office and know that you are always prepared.
The Stories section of My Knee Guide allows you to read the experiences of others who have dealt with the difficulties of knee arthritis. It also presents the stories of their recovery and return to life. By posting your own story or comments, you can empower other individuals who are going through this process just like you.
All the medical content in My Knee Guide has been created by a full time practicing, board certified orthopedic surgeon. My Knee Guide was built from the ground up always asking, “How can we help patients during their journey through knee replacement surgery.” Utilizing the unique perspective of an orthopaedic surgeon, My Knee Guide can better educate, organize, and simplify this experience.

Best support for TKR patients
Amazing app with tons of support, information, videos, real-people shares and record-keeping if you want it. Easy to navigate to specific areas as you need or want them without going through every little link. No annoying ads or links to throw you off, very easy to sign up if you care to post or leave comments but not necessary to access any and all areas of the app. Really awesome, and very very helpful.
Just had TKR on left knee 2 weeks ago. Downloaded app today and it has so many informative features. Now I feel totally prepared for my upcoming post op appointment because this app gives you questions to ask that I would not have thought of on my own. Looking forward to using this app on my road to recovery.
I wanted to learn as much as possible about my upcoming bilateral knee replacement. This app was amazing! Loved how it took me through recovery, and let me know what to expect along the way. Also was very handy with a list of questions to ask before hand and also at follow up appointments. I highly recommend it!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
