Total Hip Replacement

Get Well Soon

Helping you to make a speedy recovery after total hip replacement

Who this leaflet is for

This leaflet is for anyone who is recovering from, or is about to undergo surgery to have his or her hip replaced. The technical term for your operation is total hip replacement or total hip arthroplasty, which is how your surgeon and other health professionals who are helping you may refer to it.

This leaflet should be read in conjunction with any other information you have already been given about your procedure.

The following information is designed to help you make the important decisions about your recovery. Your surgeon, general practitioner (GP) and other healthcare professionals will offer you a lot of very good advice - but ultimately it’s you that has to make the decisions.

Obviously, every individual has different needs and recovers in different ways – so not all the advice in this leaflet will be suitable for everybody. When you’re weighing up how to make the decision that’s right for you, talk to your surgeon, your GP, or your Occupational Health service at work, if you have one. They will all be able to help you make the right choices for a safe and speedy recovery.
