Minimally invasive total hip replacement takes approximately one hour to perform. Once completed, you will wake up in the recovery room where there will be several nurses and other personnel attending to you to make sure that you are comfortable. For your comfort, you may be given a spinal, epidural, or lumbar plexus block prior to your surgery so that you wake up with minimal pain. You will also receive a pain medication pump (PCA-Patient Controlled Analgesia) to allow you to administer yourself pain medicine through your IV as needed. We will do everything possible to ensure that you are not in pain after surgery.
