How Long Will I Stay in Hospital?

Your stay in hospital will be individual to you but, in general, your stay may be 1–3 nights. The aim is to minimise pain and swelling, assist you to get in and out of bed, help you walk using crutches, and to manage stairs before you head home.

"Having joint replacement surgery is a big decision. Please ask us anything at any stage of your journey. Our team has many years of experience in orthopaedic care and we'll be with you every step of the way."
