Following hip replacement surgery, we try to return you to work as soon as possible. This may be as early as two weeks depending on your job description. Obviously if you are able to sit at a desk or do minimal walking in a day, two to three weeks is certainty very reasonable. However, if you are required to be on your feet all day or walk extensively, this could take six or eight weeks. Our goal is to get you back to work when you are safe and your pain is controlled.
