When will I be able to drive again after joint replacement?


This will depend on what joint you have had replaced and on how quickly you are progressing with your post operative mobility.

You need to be able to comfortably get in and out of a car and sit comfortably in the driver’s seat to consider driving. The best plan is to have a few trials at home before venturing out onto the open roads to ensure you are adequately mobile and comfortable to take the next step.

The time frame is usually between 6 and 12 weeks after joint replacement surgery.
