Everything You Need To Know About Bilateral Hip Replacement
Bilateral hip replacement is done routinely, presenting one of the highest success rates of body part replacement surgeries. Depending on your situation and the surgeon, you may have one hip joint replaced and then the other in a separate surgery which is usually several months apart or you can have them done simultaneously. When you have one surgery done at a time, it is really a long process because you need two hospital visits, two anesthesia treatments and then two separate rehabilitation and recovery periods. Although having just one surgery is more convenient, it is painful and rehabilitation is incredibly difficult.
