Hip Replacement Recovery
If you have a condition like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, avascular necrosis, or bone tumors, your hip joints can wear down over time, resulting in ongoing pain and reducing your overall mobility. In many cases, physical therapies, walking aids, and medication may be suggested by your doctor as the first line of treatment, with surgery as an option if these are insufficient for maintaining a high quality of life.
Hip Replacement Surgery Basics
If hip surgery is considered, a specialist may request an X-ray and recommend a hip replacement if joint damage is clearly visible. In a hip replacement procedure, the diseased bone is removed and replaced with an artificial hip joint called a prosthesis. New technology has improved artificial hip joints to withstand more pressure and strain than previous versions, meaning that the chances of normal, active life after hip replacement recovery are better than ever before.
What to Expect During Hip Replacement Recovery
After your procedure, you will need to begin your hip replacement recovery with the support of an experienced nursing team who can help you in your limited mobility. You will be taught different hip replacement recovery tips, helpful ways to move, and exercises you will need to complete to protect and support your new hip.
