After Joint Replacement Surgery
We would like all of our patients to have the goal of returning home after a total joint replacement surgery. However, you will need to arrange to have help at home for the first few days for safety reasons. Whether you are able to return home or not, you will need to continue with rehabilitation in order to achieve your maximum potential during the recovery process.
