Hi All
I see that many of you have had both knees replaced at the same time. I'm wondering if anyone has ever had a hip replaced and a knee replaced at the same time? It seems that I will need both, and I'm wondering if such a procedure would even be possible.

I think it would be difficult to find an OS prepared to perform both hip and knee replacement at the same time and think about the recovery.. Recovery from each individual joint replacement is a long and difficult journey any way.. JMHO :)
