Our innovative 6-day rehabilitation program seamlessly moves you from hip resurfacing surgery to home. This program ensures the best-possible outcomes by combining both land and warm-water-pool PT.
“Generally, patients are off crutches somewhere between 1½ to 3 weeks post-op.”
Birmingham Hip Resurfacing patients will participate in a comprehensive rehabilitation program- “HipHab”. During your 2 day inpatient surgical stay, Stoughton Hospital will provide land based physical and occupational therapy. Following hospital discharge, you will receive several days of land and aquatic therapy while staying in a private rehab apartment. We utilize a Prineo water resistant wound closure reinforced with a waterproof tegaderm dressing to ensure wound sterility. We offer this innovative approach to rehabilitation with our 6-day program that seamlessly moves you from hip resurfacing surgery to home. This program is modeled after proven programs in Europe to ensure the best-possible outcomes.
*As of June 3rd, 2015, Smith and Nephew (the manufacturer of the BHR prosthesis) has declared that the BHR is now contraindicated for all female patients.
