After-care

The artificial hip joint

Already one day after the operation, the patient can begin with movement therapy: Our experienced physiotherapists help the patient to get out of bed for the first time and perform daily exercises with him or her.

The aim is to restore mobility and the load capacity of the hip as quickly as possible. For this, orthopaedic surgeons and physiotherapists cooperate with the anaesthetists. After all, optimum pain therapy increases well-being and thus accelerates the healing process.

Usually, the patient can move independently on crutches after three days. For the next four to six weeks, the patient is reliant on these aids, as the operated hip joint should still be protected during this phase. Generally, the patient can return home or attend a rehabilitation facility after eight to ten days. The exact period of stay on the ward depends on the individual healing of the wound: there are no "revolving door discharges" with us!

We want our patients also to have optimum care after their stay at the Waldkrankenhaus Eisenberg. For this reason, we cooperate closely with the ALGOS specialist clinic and the Moritz clinic in Bad Klosterlausnitz.


Physiotherapy

Our physiotherapy team helps our patients before and after the operation to return to their normal lives as soon as possible.
