Hello I'm Dr Chip

Yes, after the surgery and physical therapy/rehab for three months you should be able to return to work and stand and walk for 8 to 12 hours daily

The freedom of mobility after the replacement can be remarkable

Please let me know if you need any more information

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
