Hip Surgery: Post-Operation Hip Precautions Posterior Approach

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

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