In brief: 4 to 6 weeks
All depend upon what kind of prosthesis is used and what surgical approach.
The mallority of the time now you can get out of bed the followind day of the surgery and start ambulation with a walker and in 2 to 3 weeks can graduate to a 4 prone cane, pt is usually helpful and you can be independent in 2 months.
