Going Home After Your Knee Replacement

Going home after your Hip Replacement. It is important that your home is safe and comfortable when you return home. Preparing your home will ensure you have everything you need during your recovery.

Rehabilitation Program

After discharge home we strongly recommend you attend an Outpatient Rehabilitation Program with your local outpatient or community rehabilitation clinic. The aim of rehabilitation programs is to help you resume your normal activities, regain your confidence, improve your fitness and assist you getting back to your best after your surgery. This will also encourage you to get back into the community and will assist in a quicker recovery.

At your pre-admission session with the hospital physiotherapist you will be referred for rehabilitation. We encourage patients if they have not had their appointments confirmed for their rehabilitation after surgery to contact the referred provider.
