After hip replacement surgery

We take the aftercare of our patients very seriously. From the physiotherapy we provide immediately after hip replacement surgery, to the X-ray we take one year after your operation – we want to ensure you’re making the most of your new hip.

After hip replacement surgery: Days 1-5

Immediately after your surgery you will be moved to the recovery ward and shortly afterwards, back to your room. The next day, our physiotherapist will come to see you and get you out of bed. It’s extremely important to start moving your new hip as soon as possible. For the next few days, our physiotherapist will get you walking and moving around safely on your new hip. Hydrotherapy is also an option for most patients.

Going home

You will be ready to go home after around 4 days in hospital. Physiotherapy continues for about a month and you will have another appointment with the clinic in six weeks. All being well, after this appointment you will be allowed to drive.

One-year anniversary

Your next follow up appointment is one year after your operation. During this appointment we will take an X-ray and check that everything is healing properly.

On-going consultations

We will continue to see you every few years to ensure that your hip continues to function as it should.
