Hip Replacement Journey
There are three resources to help you prepare and then recover from your hip replacement surgery.
The first is an education class presentation which will guide you through the entire journey and is a MUST WATCH
To support this there is the ‘Your Personal Guide to Hip Replacement Surgery’ booklet.
Lastly, there are also bite-size video clips which you can go to as many times as you need. These videos will be most appropriate at various time throughout the journey.
1. The Education Class is for people who are about to undergo a hip replacement. It lets you know what to expect from the beginning to the end of your journey. Please watch this with a relative or a friend who will be supporting you around the time of your surgery. View the Education Class HERE.
2. Your Personal Guide to Hip Replacement Booklet which will be sent to you in the post, or alternatively you can view it by clicking on this link HERE.
3. Video Clips
We have created a series of short video clips which follows your hip replacement journey from beginning to end. Please watch these at your leisure and refer back to them at the relevant stage of your journey. If you can bring in a portable computer/tablet, it would be helpful to watch these again whilst in hospital. Although we would like you to watch all the videos before your surgery date, they have separated into pre, during and post your hospital admission. The Orange videos cover the time between now and your admission to hospital. The Yellow videos relate to your hospital stay. And finally, the Green videos guide you through your rehabilitation after you leave the hospital. Please click on the 'Next-Stage' icon at the bottom of the page to see the next series of videos.
