Health Tip: Preparing for Joint Replacement Surgery

(HealthDay News) -- Having joint replacement surgery can mean a long recovery. But taking a few steps to get healthier before your operation can speed up the process.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons suggests:

  • Quit smoking, which can slow healing and recovery.
  • Lose any extra weight before surgery, and be sure to eat a well-balanced, nutritious diet.
  • Avoid alcohol for at least 48 hours before surgery.
  • Talk to your doctor if you use any prescribed controlled substances.
  • Talk to your doctor about exercising before surgery.
