Your Life After Surgery
In the months after joint surgery, patients gradually move toward greater independence in all activities. It is important to stay active and healthy and continue to exercise, which builds stamina and endurance.
Recovering from surgery depends on your general health before the procedure and the type of joint that is being replaced. The goal during the recovery period is to help you comfortably return to your daily activities.
While most surgical procedures are successful in relieving pain and improving movement, recovery does take time. Most patients need at least three to five months to get their strength and energy back.
The team at the Center for Joint Reconstruction Surgery is more than happy to answer any additional questions you may have about surgery and your recovery.
