One-Day-Hip surgery

The One Day Hip pathway is a hip replacement surgery that both reduces the risk of complications and shortens recovery time. You may leave the hospital the very evening after surgery to rehabilitate in your familiar surroundings. This with continuous professional guidance/monitoring customized by our expert team.

Our Hip Coach accompanies you before and after surgery. He co-follows up on checkups, advises on optimal recovery and looks for the best exercise therapy. This in order to pick up all desired physical activities and goals again. This is done in collaboration with your general practitioner and physical therapist. Thanks to the HipCloud, everyone can follow exactly what steps are best taken for optimal rehabilitation. Preparation and commitment are the key words here.

Thus, we not only increase efficiency in your recovery process, but also speed up your recovery options from home. We also significantly reduce the administrative burden and overall cost. Both for the doctor, the patient and for society.


The follow-up of a large group of 617 hip surgeries – operated between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2017 – has provided very valuable information. This follow-up shows that 80% of patients have a perfect rehabilitation in which they can spontaneously completely omit their crutches after 2-3 weeks. This study was published in a leading scientific journal.

In 19% of patients, we see transient complaints that make recovery a bit more difficult. These complaints may include lower back pain (7-8%) or muscle pain in the groin (3-4%). Follow-up also shows that the risk for reoperation within the year is about 1% because of a wound problem, fracture from a fall or infection. The risk for surgery on the prosthesis itself is 0.5%. This is a significantly lower risk than what we can observe in the U.S. implant registry with a risk of 2.9%.

So these figures teach that although there is a risk of complications with the EDA hip. But this risk was greatly reduced compared to hip replacement surgery without Prof. Dr. Corten’s optimization.

We also see in the figures that the patients’ functionality improves significantly post-operatively. After all, 80% have a “forgotten hip” after 1 year. This means that most of the time people are no longer aware that they have had surgery.
