If a person has hip replacement surgery, how long is the operation

This answer was rated:

If a person has hip replacement surgery, how long is the operation and how long would that stay in the hospital?

Thanks,
Chris
Hello,
A hip replacement surgery usually takes around two hours.

The average hospital stay for a hip replacement patient is around 3-4 days sometimes 10 days, until you're able to walk safely with the aid of sticks or crutches.


I hope this helps.

thanks, XXXXX XXXXX miss my last question about going home the same day? Is that possible with hip replacement surgery.

Hello,
You shouldn't go home the same day as it can be risky to handle any complication like infection,pain,swelling,internal bleeding.
Even sometimes walking in initial stage can be very painful.
If you want to go home earliest as possible then you can go home after 2-3 days.


I hope this helps.
