Post-procedure Care

Robotic-guided total hip replacement can be completed as an outpatient procedure (home following surgery the same day) in select patients, or as a short hospitalization (typically 1 day). The evening of surgery you will be out of bed and walking. You will be encouraged to bear weight on both legs as soon as possible with the use of crutches, a walker, or a cane for support until you feel fully comfortable.

Following surgery, it is very important to get plenty of rest, eat a nutritious diet, and keep well hydrated. A therapist will teach you ways to accommodate to your daily life as you recover from your surgery. The therapist will discuss items such as rearranging your home and exercises to help strengthen the hip. Over the course of several weeks, your activity level will gradually increase. Your physical therapist will help with this and will design a special exercise regimen that will help you recover faster and get back to recreational activities that you enjoy. Most patients are able to resume light activities about 6 weeks after surgery without assistance.
