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.
The team examined 769 patients who were discharged and sent home after one-sided total hip or knee replacement. Of these, 138 patients were living alone for the first two weeks after surgery.
They compared complication rates and other important outcomes for patients who lived alone versus those who lived with others.

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 total hip replacements, but the percentage of patients needing revision for all wear-related problems and metal-reactions is less than 1% in men, and less than 3% in women at 19 years.
We have investigated the earliest series of our BHRs, with extensive assessments including CT scanning at post 10-year reviews, … 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 at Austin.
“We recommend that chronic opioid users who are considering hip or knee replacement work with their primary care physician or pain management team to reduce their use of opioids prior to considering elective surgery,” Bozic said.
“This milestone represents the fourth FDA-approved indication for PRADAXA in five years — a testament to the company’s continued leadership in the evolution of anticoagulation care for patients and clinicians,” said Sabine Luik, MD, senior vice president, Medicine & Regulatory Affairs, Boehringer Ingelheim. “PRADAXA has the longest real-world experience of any novel oral anticoagulant, and we are dedicated to ongoing research.

Outpatient orthopedic procedures gaining popularity on international level – Read Full Article Here
It is known by several names: same-day surgery, day-case surgery, ambulatory surgery and outpatient surgery. Whatever the name, outpatient orthopaedic surgery is now considered by many to be safe and feasible across an ever-widening array of joints replacement. Proponents of these procedures say they have the potential to increase patient comfort and satisfaction while improving hospital efficiency and reducing health care costs. … Read the rest
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. Overseas hospitals use elbow crutches while US hospital still normally use old fashioned under the arm crutches. If you have to be on crutches for a long time, I would suggest getting a pair of elbow crutches or at least a pair of the more modern underarm crutches available from many internet shopping stores.
Walker – some people that have bi-lateral surgery or special hip problems are required to use a walker. Whether you use crutches or a walker is up to your orthopedic surgeon.
The top of your cane should reach to the crease in your wrist when you stand up straight. Your elbow should bend a bit when you hold your cane. Hold the cane in the hand opposite the side that needs support.Walking
When you walk, the cane and your injured leg swing and strike the ground at the same time. To start, position your cane about one small stride ahead and step off on your injured leg. Finish the step with your normal leg.Stairs
To climb stairs, grasp the handrail (if possible) and step up on your good leg first, with your cane in the hand opposite the injured leg. Then step up on the injured leg. To come down stairs, put your cane on the step first, then your injured leg, and finally the good leg, which carries your body weight.… Read the rest
