Abstract

Patient activity after total hip arthroplasty or resurfacing is an increasingly important issue facing the hip surgeons. The patients requiring hip surgery are becoming younger and more active as the generation of baby boomers begins to reach retirement age. It is important to manage patient expectations and discuss with them the realistic outcomes. This work reviews what is known to examine the effects of patient activity on implant survival and the ability of patients to return to recreation after surgery. The current consensus guidelines based on surveys of the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons and the Hip Society membership are described.
