The AAHKS Patient and Public Relations Committee has just published a new article to the AAHKS Patient Education Library, “A Guide to Returning to Sexual Activity Following Total Hip and Knee Replacement.” This is a common concern that patients are often uncomfortable bringing up with their surgeons. The article advises patients who have had total hip replacement surgery to avoid certain positions that cause extreme flexing of the hip joint. An infographic shows safe and unsafe positions. The recommendation for patients who have had knee replacement surgery is to set realistic expectations for activity involving kneeling. Read and share this article with your patients.
