Between 15-20 years depending on level of activity and types of activities that are participated in. Obesity also plays a factor. Therefore, it is important to stay active and fit to extend the life of the new hip.

How long is the hospital stay?

Generally speaking, 2-3 days.

How long is the incision?

About 4 inches.

How soon after surgery will I be able to walk?

Most of our patients walk as early as 3-4 hours after hip replacement.

What kind of therapy is required?

Generally speaking, no therapy is ordered. We ask that our patients walk as much as possible for the first 6 weeks following surgery and avoid other types of exercise activities until the bone has had a chance to grow into the prosthesis.
