Hip Replacement

Category

Every patient asks the same question before having an operation. How long is the recovery period? Actually, the recovery period can vary depending on each operation and patient.

For example, hemiarthroplasty, which refers “half” replacement, takes less operative time, causes less blood loss and fewer complications postoperatively as compared to total hip replacement. However, the functional outcome at one year is better with total hip replacement as compared to hemiarthroplasty.
