In brief: 1-3 days

Typically patients can go home after 2 days.
Some people are ahead of schedule and some people are a little behind. It also depends on your surgeon and their comfort level with you going home. Most surgeons believe anterior hip replacement can lead to a faster recovery. www.oano.com.
