Tests Before Total Hip Replacement

As mentioned, patients need to undergo a thorough evaluation process before doctors decide on a particular hip surgery treatment plan suitable for their condition. Here are some common tests that candidates may need to go through before the procedure:

Physical Examination: The surgeon will thoroughly examine the hip joint to evaluate the range of motion, strength, and stability. This may include the following: 

Imaging Tests: Imaging tests help doctors understand the extent of the damage to the hip and the requirements of the surgery. These may include the following:

Additional Pre-operative Testings: These tests are done before a surgical procedure to assess the patient’s overall health, identify any underlying medical conditions that may affect the surgery, and optimise outcomes for the patient. Some of these tests include:

Not every patient will have to go through each of these diagnostic tests. Based on individual conditions, patients may need to go through some or all of the above-mentioned tests. Some patients may need additional testing to evaluate if they are eligible for surgery.

What is the Procedure for Total Hip Replacement Surgery?

Surgery of total hip arthroplasty is usually recommended for patients who are not benefiting from medications, lifestyle recommendations, and other forms of treatment. It is a major surgery that involves removing a damaged or diseased hip joint and replacing it with an artificial joint or prosthesis.

How to Prepare for a Quick Recovery?

Recovery may look different for every patient after receiving hip implants in a hip surgery procedure. To ensure that you recover efficiently and quickly, it is imperative you follow the surgeon’s pre-operative instructions, such as stopping medications that may increase the risk of bleeding or other complications. Before surgery, you must engage in pre-operative exercises recommended by the surgeon or physical therapist to improve joint strength and flexibility. Once the surgery is done, it is vital to arrange for post-operative care, such as transportation home, help with daily activities, and follow-up appointments with the surgeon and physical therapist. 

Overall, it is crucial to adhere to post-operative care instructions, including medication management, wound care, and physical therapy, to ensure a successful recovery.

What are the Risks Associated
With Hip Replacement Surgery?

The surgery has high success rates with minimal complications reported. However, it is major surgery and may carry a certain risk of complications, including the following:


Physical therapy exercises are typically recommended for at least 3-6 months following the surgery. This may vary for each patient.

Hip implants or hip prostheses can last a lifetime for patients. In general, most artificial hip joints can last 10 to 20 years or more. However, this may be affected by factors such as the patient’s age, activity level, and the type of implant used.

Yes, you may be required to limit your movement as instructed by the physical therapist for some time after surgery. The therapist will instruct you on regaining mobility and using the joint correctly during recovery.

Most patients can resume normal activities shortly after total surgery. However, following your doctor’s instructions and avoiding high-impact activities that could damage the hip implant is important.
