J Arthroplasty. 2017 Jul;32(7):2191-2198. doi: 10.1016/j.arth.2017.02.002.

  • 30 cases ages 67 +/- 7 yrs
  • Physical Activity of Total Hip Arthoplasty¬† patients was quantified to 12 months postoperation
  • “Physical activity did not change from presurgery to 12 months postsurgery despite improvement”

Comment – my brother dislocated his artificial hip just bending down so there are certain restrictions. People need to be warned about their function after surgery not being associated with more activity
