Life With Your New Joint: Follow-Up Care
You will be able to discuss your discharge plan with your orthopaedic team to make the best possible plan for your recovery. Most patients go home 1-2 days after surgery depending on if any complications arise. Please speak with your surgeon about any restrictions after surgery, and be sure to call your doctor to make a follow-up appointment if you do not have one scheduled already. He or she will be able to address any questions you have about your recovery.
