Hip Replacement Happy9th November 2019
1.2 million people have a hip replacement every year, and more than 1 in 10 will need to be redone. This is often because post-surgical rehabilitation is not thorough, or pre-surgical strength and function is not as good as it could be. Knowledge and preparation prior to your operation is a major factor in the success of a hip replacement, and knowing what to expect and how to prepare for the procedure is critical.
