In brief: 6-12 weeks

Usually 6 to 12 weeks but depending on the surgery and the individual this can vary.

In brief: Hip recovery

In general it takes 3 to 6 months to recover after hip replacement.
If your surgery is done through a posterior approach then recovery may take longer if it is done via a direct anterior approach recovery may be shorter.
