I can't say enough good things about the whole process I went through on my recent right Mako Robotic Hip Replacement compared to the old school hip replacement I had done 12 years ago on the left side. I had an amazing recovery time with my most recent hip replacement. I was up and walking around with a cane the day after the surgery and able to take short walking steps around the living room at home on the second day without the cane. Dr. Horazdovsky and his care team are amazing as well as the support team at Minnesota Valley Surgery Center in Burnsville. Best minimally invasive hip replacement anyone could go through. The more you get up and walk the faster you heal, at first you experience joint stiffness in the morning till about noon and as time goes on you experience less stiffness in the mornings. Walking on it is the key to recovery length. In my 3rd week of recovery I was up to walking about 2-3 miles in the morning and on my 5th week I was able to go back to work and stand for 10hrs a day behind CNC Machines as a machinist. 6 weeks later, I hardly ever feel anything anymore, maybe a sore hip muscle twitch now and then getting into my pickup truck, but that’s about it at 59 years old.
