Before undergoing your total hip replacement, your doctor will prescribe a complete physical examination to assess your condition and to ensure that there are no factors that could interfere with your surgery.
Your doctor may ask you for blood and urine tests and possibly a cardiogram, prior to your surgery.
Prior to surgery, provide your surgeon with a complete list of the medications you are taking including doses and times. He or she will inform you if you need to stop or change any medication.
After the intervention special equipment, such as support stockings and crutches, may be needed: you can rent or buy them from specialized shops. Check with your physiotherapist.
