Another common question is "when are avid golfers can return back to the game?" I typically tell patients to abstain for at least six weeks following their joint replacement surgery. The idea is that the fact of going through a full swing with a golf swing places a lot of torque through the implant, either the hip or the knee replacement. We want to allow at least six weeks for the hips for that implant to grow into the bone. Typically, we start with just light pitches and even putting and abstaining from a full swing up until two to three months following the surgery.
