Can a hip and knee be replaced at the same time?

It’s typically recommended that the joint causing the most symptoms be replaced first. If symptoms are similar, then it’s usually best for the hip replacement to be done first. You’ll need to allow about six weeks for recovery and rehabilitation after your hip replacement. Depending on your individual circumstances, you should be able to move forward with the knee replacement procedure any time after that.

What is the average age of a total hip replacement candidate?

Age is not a major consideration in a total hip replacement. The severity of the patient’s pain and restriction in activities is the primary consideration.

What are common risks of hip replacements?

The risk of major complications with hip replacement is low. There is a small risk of blood clot, infection, and anesthesia complication. Occasionally, patients have some continued discomfort in the hip after surgery. Speak to your surgeon about concerns.

How long do hip replacements last?

Depending on the patient and their lifestyle, today’s implants can last longer than 20 years.

What does a hip labral tear feel like?

Hip labral tear symptoms can include: Deep groin pain or pain in the buttocks on the side of the injured hip. A feeling or sound of clicking or locking when your hip is in motion. Hip pain, especially while it rotates in certain directions.
