After Hip Replacement we expect you will get out of bed and walk the day of surgery. This is extremely important to get your muscles moving to help prevent blood clots from forming in your legs. In addition, the next morning you will get up and will be walking with a walker to participate in physical therapy. After a short stay in the hospital, most patients go home and are on their way to normal activity four weeks after surgery.
