Do I need any rehabilitation or physiotherapy after the surgery? Can I return to sports? Patients who received BHR surgery will share the post-operation rehabilitation process and how they benefit from the surgery.
Washington D.C. [USA], Jan. 20 : A study has recently revealed that patients who live alone can be safely discharged and sent home from a hospital to recover from hip or knee replacement surgery.
The results question the belief that patients who live alone should routinely be sent to an inpatient rehabilitation facility after total joint replacement surgery before going home.
Researchers said, “Patients living alone had a safe and manageable recovery when discharged directly home after total joint Arthroplasty.”
Andrew N. Fleischman and colleagues from The Rothman Institute, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, conducted the study.

Response to Telegraph Article – News Feed Monday 3rd July 2017
In response to the recent Telegraph article, Mr McMinn would like to reassure all of his patients that nothing has changed in the outcomes of our hip resurfacing and total hip replacement patients. Our results do not show anything different, but the MHRA guidelines have changed, probably because of some reports of small diameter metal-on-metal total hip replacements. We have not had an increase in our failure rates due to metal reactions. A small percentage of hips had to be revised to non-metal-on-metal … Read the rest

March 6, 2016 Decreased opioid use prior to joint replacement surgery has been linked with improved patient satisfaction and outcomes, fewer complications and a reduced need for post-surgical opioids, according to two new studies.
They found nearly 59 percent of the patients (49,617) did not use opioids prior to surgery, while 41.4 percent did. The top three prescribed opioids were hydrocodone/acetaminophen, oxycodone/acetaminophen, and oxycodone.
In opioid users, the study showed that a 50 percent or greater preoperative reduction of opioid use leads to better patient outcomes,” said lead author Kevin Bozic from the University of Texas … Read the rest

It is known by several names: same-day surgery, day-case surgery, ambulatory surgery and outpatient surgery.

What Equipment Will I Need At Home After Surgery?
Everyone has slightly different needs. There are some basic items almost everyone needs and then there are things that some people want and others just don’t need.
Crutches – Normally crutches are supplied by the hospital. I used elbow crutches and they are much easier to use than normal under the arm crutches.

If you have to be on crutches for a long time, I would suggest getting a pair of elbow … Read the rest

The suggested sexual positions explained below may help you avoid dislocating your new hip after hip resurfacing surgery.
