+ Post Total Joint Replacement Instructions

Perform gait training as taught by physical therapists.

No hip strengthening exercises for 6 weeks.

After 6 weeks post-op, be aware of these hip precautions:

  • No sitting in low seats/chairs
  • No squatting to pick up objects off the floor
  • No crossing legs
  • No driving unless otherwise instructed

If any invasive procedure such as dental work, colonoscopy, or other surgeries are planned, please contact the office for antibiotics to be taken prior to a procedure. This will lessen the risk of post-operative joint infections.
