Returning to work

We understand that being able to return to work after hip replacement is a primary concern for many patients, but it’s important that you take the time to let the wound heal and do your physiotherapy.

When to return to work after hip replacement

You will probably feel ready to go back to work after around 3 months, but it’s important to be sure that you’re fully rested. Tiredness is one of the key reasons why you might wish to postpone your return to work after hip replacement. Most people find that they are tired for several weeks following surgery and returning too soon can affect your concentration. You might also experience problems with your rehabilitation, as the demands of your job could get in the way of your daily exercises and progress.
