Watch as our patient’s talk about the post-surgical process and how they are asked to get up and walk just hours after hip replacement surgery. Dr. Larry Door talks about the advances they have made in the administration of anesthesia and the use of pain pills post surgery instead of morphine or Demerol shots to mange pain. The number one complaint in the hospitalization of patients today is not pain but nausea and vomiting. These advances have made surgeons like Dr. Door and Dietrick pay greater concerns to this issue and adopt new practices to make the patient more comfortable. The big message for patients having hip replacement is to walk and walk and walk some more after surgery.
