A hip replacement surgery is considered to be a significant surgery in a human body. It has been observed that the hip replacement surgery has had maximum number of satisfied patients after the surgery. The success rate of a hip replacement surgery is very high and the recovery is done within few months.

Early physical therapy is for you to learn to walk safely with your walker, crutches or other assistive device. Your orthopedic surgeon will determine how much weight you can bear on your new hip and the therapist will teach you the proper techniques for walking

Patients who discharge out of the hospital soon after the surgery have to take care of the wound in a rehabilitation centre. The rehabilitation program followed at home should be consulted with the surgeon and the physical therapist. Rehabilitation is one of the most critical factors in achieving successful hip resurfacing surgery. The patients must actively participate in the rehabilitation process, working on their own as well as with their physical therapist to achieve optimal results. The rehabilitation exercises that are suggested by the doctors to the patient to perform are

Pushing your foot up and down.

Moving the ankle inward toward the other foot and then outward away from the other foot.

Slide the heel toward the buttocks, bending the knee and keeping the heel on the bed. Do not let the knee roll inward.
