Our patients report quicker recovery time and less pain with the anterior approach. Surgeons are able to place the hip replacement more accurately, and there are no hip precautions like there are with traditional approaches.
The majority of patients can go home the same day of surgery. Patients with Medicare are currently required to spend the night. Those who spend the night generally leave the hospital by 10am the next morning.
The best therapy after your hip replacement will be walking. We will arrange therapy for the first two weeks after surgery.
The total recovery time after hip replacement is generally around six weeks.
In general, we recommend planning on taking a month off. For those with desk jobs, you can return as soon as you feel comfortable.
The vast majority of patients report discomfort more than pain. The pain is generally much less than before the surgery. The soreness generally last three to four weeks.
Surgery typically lasts less than one hour. During that time, your friends and family will be waiting in the surgical waiting area. Your surgeon will talk to your loved ones as soon as the surgery is over.
Patients recover much quicker after surgery when they know what to expect after surgery. We strongly encourage that you attend the joint replacement class so that you and your love ones are well prepared for the surgery.
Your primary care doctor understands your medical issues that need to be optimized prior to surgery. We would like for you to see them prior to surgery. If you have a history of heart problems, you will need to be seen by your cardiologist.
The complications we worry about the most include: infection, fracture, dislocation, leg length and blood clots.
