Your first follow-up visit will be approximately four weeks after surgery. You will be seen in the Gulshan & Pyarali G. Nanji Orthopaedic and Plastics Centre located at North York Genera Hospital (NYGH). You may have X-rays done and will be seen by your surgeon. The next follow-up appointment will be after three months in your surgeon's office. If you are having concerns or complications, you may be seen earlier than these scheduled times.
The Total Joint Assessment Centre (TJAC) will contact you, in writing, with your follow-up appointments before the first, fifth, and tenth anniversary of your hip replacement. You may be followed up more frequently after 10 years, based on previous assessments. If you have concerns or complications, please contact your family doctor or your surgeon's office.
The benefits of hip replacement surgery are great and will be achieved with your effort and time.
NYGH's health care team closely monitors your progress at the Total Joint Assessment Centre.
