The importance of pre-operative teaching in the prevention of falls for total knee arthroplasty (TKA) post-surgical patients. Name Institution Course Instructor Date Introduction Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) also known as total knee replacement is a common surgical procedure in the orthopedic department which is conducted to about 130000 patients every year in the United States (Johnson et al. 2014).
