Frequently Asked Questions

Will I need physical therapy once I get home?

For patients undergoing hip surgery , you will be given a detailed physical therapy program during your hospital stay. Once you are discharged to your home , you will continue this program on your own three times a day. The best therapy is to institute a formal walking program and increase your distance daily. At six weeks post-op , we will progress you to the Phase 2 hip exercises (form #7 on the website). For patients undergoing knee surgery , physical therapy will be arranged for you by our medical social worker. You will have physical therapy every day for the first week then three times a week for the next three weeks. For patients undergoing a unicompartmental replacement , you will follow the same regiment but it will only last two weeks , then you will continue therapy on your own.
