Here at Mass General, we are creating these patient guides for many of our top surgical procedures and services. This particular guide for a total hip replacement summarizes the entire joint replacement process at Massachusetts General Hospital. Includes: introduction to our care team, an explanation of treatment options, surgical preparation information, expectations after surgery and recovery at home. These Patient Guides also provide valuable information for patients’ family members.
