Many patients will ask when they can go back to driving. Typically with right-sided replacement surgery, it's typically around three weeks. My requirements are you have to be off of a walker or any of the narcotic medicines, and the last requirement is more subjective in that patients have to feel that they can suddenly slam on the brakes if a small child were to run in front of their car. Typically, all of these things occur within around three weeks following the joint replacement, but many patients it can be sooner.
