Hip surgery post-op treatments
You will require a post-operative hip strengthening and rehabilitation program to prolong the life of your new hip and resume your most active lifestyle.
For more information about hip surgery, please contact your physiotherapist or doctor.
If your symptoms continue to remain unchanged on return to sport, then referral to an orthopaedic surgeon is recommended.Surgical treatment for FAI is performed either by arthroscopic debridement or can be performed by open surgical debridement. While the techniques are quite different, the operations both aim to address the mechanical and pathological changes around the neck/acetabulum junction.
Post-FAI Hip Surgery Rehabilitation
A supervised hip rehabilitation program with your physiotherapist is an essential part of your post-surgical FAI recovery. Recovery from hip arthroscopy typically takes 3-4 months, while open hip debridement is typically 12 months. Hip arthroscopy has been the preferred method in recent years and has reported excellent results with 80% of patients asymptomatic by 3-4 months and up to 95% having improved symptoms by one year.
