Arthritis Home > What to Expect After Total Hip Replacement

Following total hip replacement surgery and physical therapy, you can expect that your hip will function much better. Most patients with stiff hips before surgery have improved motion afterwards.
 
The majority of patients who have a total hip replacement experience significant relief from pain. These patients usually have successful results even after 10 years.
 
Having total hip replacement surgery should allow you to carry out many normal activities of daily living that may be painful or difficult to participate in now with your current symptoms.
 
Because individual situations can vary, talk to your healthcare provider about your total hip replacement surgery expectations. It is important that your expectations match those of your doctor.
