Total Hip Replacement Surgery

A total hip replacement (THR) surgery is a medical procedure performed to replace the worn-out hip joint/s in individuals who:

  • have moderate to severe arthritis (ie. osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, traumatic arthritis, etc); 
  • a failed hardware (from a previous surgery);
  • who have moderate to severe functional impairments due to their worn-out or damaged hip joint/s. 

Most THR surgeries are performed unilaterally (one-sided).  Depending on the surgical approach that your surgeon will choose to perform (ie. anterior approach vs postero-lateral approach), there may some post-op hip precautions that may be prescribed to you to follow for the next 3 months post-surgery.

In Ontario, most uncomplicated THRs will usually have a 0-2 days length of stay in the hospital prior to being discharged home.  Most THR patients are eligible for the Hip and Knee Bundle Program* post-hospital discharge.

*Ask your surgeon/ most-responsible physician for more information on how to be referred to the Hip and Knee Bundle Program available in your area.
