About Rapid Recovery

The aim of the programme is to enable a quick yet safe recovery

The Rapid Recovery Programme has been designed to optimise all aspects of a patient’s journey from pre-operative assessment through to and beyond discharge.

rapid recovery programme from Biomet

The aim of the programme is to enable a quick yet safe recovery from a hip or knee replacement operation.  Reduced hospital stays improve patient satisfaction and aiming for a timely discharge promotes excellent team communication for professionals.  

With everyone involved in the process working towards a common goal, the patient is headed for a “rapid recovery”.

There are four main elements of the Rapid Recovery programme:


Process Optimisation:

Standardising protocols and ensuring quality management to improve outcomes


Optimising Surgical Procedure:

Using less invasive surgical techniques, superior implants and advanced healing concepts to aid patient recovery


Data Collection:

Collecting data on clinical outcomes, economic results and patient satisfaction in order to continuously improve practice.


Healthcare Communication:

Educating patients prior to their operation and throughout their stay so they have realistic expectations and understand their role in their recovery.
