When can I shower after my hip surgery?
For hip arthroscopy patients, you can shower 2 days after surgery once you remove your bandages.
Patients who had a total hip replacement may shower the day after surgery; however, most people will require assistance getting in and out of the shower.
If you had either of the above procedures, please avoid submerging your hip in water (i.e. bathtub, pool, Jacuzzi) until after your sutures/bandages are removed in the office at your first post operative appointment.
