What Happens After Surgery

Before having surgery, it's important to think about life after surgery. Do you have the help you need? Here are a few tips to get you started. If you haven't already, please review our Preparing for Surgery page.

Assistive Devices

A walker, cane or crutches may be used for about two to four weeks.  Our qualified staff will take care of any equipment needs you may have prior to discharge from the hospital on an individual basis.

Some other devices you may need:

  • Grab bars in the bathroom
  • A bath seat
  • Help with lower body dressing

Physical Therapy

You will need physical therapy after joint surgery. The number of physical therapy sessions you’ll need varies for by individual, but exercise must be a lifetime commitment. Your surgeon and physical therapist will design a program to specifically meet your needs.

Activity Restrictions

After joint replacement surgery, you’re advised to avoid high-impact activities, such as:

  • Running
  • Tennis
  • Basketball
  • Soccer
  • Down-hill skiing
  • Any injury-prone activities

Other restrictions may include:

  • Crossing your legs
  • Twisting operated legs
  • Twisting side-to-side
  • Bending 90 degrees at the hip
