Roughly the same as with a primary THR.What is the recovery time for a revision?
Fraid not - would be totally impossible to do.Can the less minimum invasive procedure be used on a revision?
I wouldn't have thought so. Tends to be on account of something like a diseased joint, such a hip or a knee or even a foot problem, a spinal deformity or even just long term low back pain. In fact, anything that causes the person to walk with an unbalanced stature.You mentioned muscles imbalance on one side or the other. I have had the following surgeries:
•2/10/04 Gastric bypass--procedure performed (Roux-en-y laparoscopically) Gall bladder also removed during this procedure due to gall stones. Maintaining a 120 lbs weight loss
•9/19/06 Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE)
•9/8/06 Hernia Repair (open) Emergency in nature
9/28/06 Infected in Hospital with Clostridium Difficile Colitis (C-Diff) total of 20 days hospitalized
I have always been a walker; before I hip surgery walking 25/30 miles a week.
Would these surgeries have a factor with the muscle imbalance?
