Joint replacement is one of the most successful surgeries in orthopedics, but it takes time to recover from your joint replacement surgery. In hip replacement surgery, the femoral acetabular components (“ball and socket”) grow into the patient’s natural bone over time. This requires at least three months to happen. During this time, patients need to avoid high-risk activities such as high-impact jumping or climbing. Those types of activities could potentially dislodge the prosthesis and ultimately decrease the chance for true bonding of the implant to the patient’s natural bone.
