The time changes for everyone, depending on age, health conditions before the break, and how bad the break is. On average, the break takes about 1-3 months to fully heal. If the hip has been operated on it usually takes longer to heal than one without operation. That being said, a healthy younger person heals faster and much better than a sick elderly person, even if they were both operated on or not. For the first month it's best not to walk. The following months usually consists of physical therapy, but it depends on your doctor's treatment.

A total hip replacement surgery involves 3 kinds of prosthesis. The first is a cup that is used to replace the hip socket. The next is a ball that replaces the head of the thigh bone and finally, there is a stem that is attached to the thigh bone.

It can take months to recover from joint replacement surgery, so you need to plan for post-operative care as well. You will require some amount of assistance, so make sure there is somebody available to help you. It could be a friend, family member, or even a trained nurse.

Most joint replacement patients (especially hip & knee) have been known to be able to stand up the first-day post-surgery. However, every individual has a different recovery timeline depending on their specific situation. If you follow your doctor’s instructions well, you should be able to recover completely within a few months.

Ranka Hospital, Pune provides treatment and facilities for hip replacement.

After a full hip replacement you will be encouraged to stand and begin walking from day 2 using crutches. On average, patients will be discharged from 7-10 days. Once home, you are encouraged to walk 2-3 times daily together with completeting the daily set of exercises set by physio. Between weeks 1-3 I typically walked about 1 mile for each walk. By week 4 I could walk up to 3 miles and from weeks 4-6 used one crutch only and could walk up stairs unaided. During this time I was doing group physio weekly. By week 6 I could walk without crutches and returned to work. From about the beginning of the third month (week 9) I was using gym equipment, swimming and cycling to strengthen my hip. I am now in my 4th month since the operation. My joint is still stiff compared to the "good" hip anr regularly aches after long periods of exercise. I am advised it will take at least 6 months to regain full strength.

Will a dog's broken hip heal?

This depends upon the part that is broken. If the acetabulum (the pelvis half of the hip joint) or the head of the femur (the thigh bone half of the hip joint) is broken, the entire leg may have to be immobilized for the break to heal. This may also require orthopedic surgery to stabilize and repair. However, if the iliac crest is broken, this may heal on its own.
