Re: dancing after hip replacement surgery. Posted by Dance Student 11/7/2014 11:14:00 AM
My instructor had a total hip replacement April 28, 2014. There was only a min amount of muscle cut. He was back teaching students the 2nd week of July. (we all had time off, so we all came back slowly) He followed through with all his physical therapy he is back 100% as of November. He is even contemplating dancing professionally with his wife again to some degree (they have kids living at home).
He was bone on bone - his surgeon told him he was 6 months away from cracking the pelvis the socket had become so thin. His surgeon works on all types of athletes. He even worked on Mark Cuban just before he went on Dancing With The Stars TV show.
Do you home work on the surgeon you choose and make sure they know what YOUR goals are for the future.
