Having a hip replaced is often the last option you have in order to walk normally again. But continually delaying the surgery is never a good choice. When your hip has deteriorated to the point that hip surgery is recommended by your doctor, postponing the surgery is often making your situation even worse.

There is really no point in putting off a hip replacement. They are performed all over the world on a regular basis. And while the surgery itself is a major invasive procedure, as long as your surgeons are knowledgeable and experienced performing the operation, there is little to worry about.

At Vejthani Hospital, the doctors and staff are highly skilled in minimally invasive surgery performing hip replacement surgery. The notes and recommendation from your doctor at home are carefully reviewed by them or they can perform the initial examination themselves to give you their opinion on the recommended treatment for your hip problem.

Life After a Hip Replacement

Once the hip has been replaced, the hospital staff will have you out of bed and walking within a few days of the surgery. While this may seem too soon for some, the reason is to avoid any blood clots forming due to inactivity after surgery. Within 3 to 6 weeks you will be pretty much moving normally.
