7. When can I drive?

Generally, one can drive 4-6 weeks after surgery. After total hip replacement, driving is not advised until 6 weeks post-operative in order to maintain hip precautions. You may have someone else drive while you are a passenger. After knee replacement you may drive earlier than 6 weeks if cleared by physical therapy. When beginning to drive again, start with short distances and routes that are familiar.
