When will I be discharged from the hospital after the surgery?

With the anterior approach to hip replacement surgery, many patients can be discharged from the hospital the same day. In fact, many of these surgeries are being performed at outpatient surgery centers. If a patient chooses to stay overnight, he or she is typically released the following morning following a physical therapy session. Some patients require a longer stay, particularly if they have been using a walker, cane, or wheelchair leading up to surgery.
