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 procedure. This will lessen the risk of post-operative joint infections.
