Hip Surgery: Post-Operation Hip Precautions Lateral Approach

​In hip replacement surgeries, surgeons may choose to approach the hip from the front (lateral) or the back (posterolateral) of the hip.

Right after your surgery, some movements will be too stressful for your new hip joint and may cause loosening and dislocation of the affected hip.

Please observe the following precautions for six to eight weeks or more, as advised by your surgeon.
