Surgery
3 doctors agree

In brief: depends

Your surgeon will give you an estimate on this time, and it depends on your overall health, the degree of joint damage, the type of hip prosthesis being placed.
The range is a few days to a few weeks. Technology such as the navigator ct system can decrease surgical swelling and lead to earlier ambulation. Take friend/family and ask about navigator system. Be well.
