Purpose of Study 

The purpose of this study is to better understand the expectations patients have of a total knee replacement, and to compare the outpatient rehabilitation system in Canada with the inpatient rehabilitation system in Germany for the purpose of cost analysis and rehabilitation outcomes of patients between the two.


This study is open to patients who are waiting for an initial total knee replacement (i.e. can have one knee done already and waiting for the second knee replacement, but can not be having both knees done at the same time).
