When can I remove my hip dressing/bandages?
If you had a hip arthroscopy, you may remove your dressing 2 days after the surgery. Just put band-aids over the incisions until your sutures are removed at your first post operative appointment.
If you had hip replacement surgery, your dressing needs to remain on until you have your first post operative appointment. It is water-resistant, so you can get it wet in the shower.
Please avoid submerging your hip in water (i.e. bathtub, pool, Jacuzzi) until after your bandages are removed in the office at your first post operative appointment.
