Total knee replacement (TKR) is considered to be among the most successful type of orthopedic surgery, with 15-year-survival-rate of implant exceeding 95%; furthermore, the improvement in quality of life is very significant. This study aims to describe the demographics, length of hospitalization and short-term outcome observed in patients undergoing TKR at Sanglah Hospital in 2018. All patients undergoing TKR at Sanglah Hospital in 2018 have been prospectively entered into our database. A total of 59 patients were recorded on 2018 for this study and 1 revision TKR patient and 2 patients with incomplete data were excluded.

As many as 51.8% patients had right TKR and 49.2% left TKR. The modus of patient’s length of stay is 7 days with 27 (48.2%) patients started to walk on the 4th day.
