in their study allowed full weight bearing
between 5.7-11.6 weeks an average of 8.65 weeks.
On postoperative day 1, full weight bearing
with a walker is allowed as tolerated.
Within six months, he redeveloped symptoms in the left knee which were managed with touch weight bearing and a hinged knee brace for four weeks (0-60 degrees) followed by progression to full weight bearing
over the course of the next three months.
Similarly full weight bearing
and return to works showed no significant difference.
This results in a stable construct, allowing a standard total hip arthroplasty to be performed using primary implants, with enough stability to allow immediate full weight bearing
. All of this is done under a single anaesthetic.

The neural networks in the lower cord are capable of initiating full weight bearing
and relatively co-ordinated stepping without any input from the brain."
