Despite major advances in the field of total joint arthroplasty, a standardized postoperative management protocol currently does not exist following total hip arthroplasty (THA) and total knee arthroplasty (TKA). A survey was mailed to the active members of the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons to investigate issues such as postoperative rehabilitation and activity restriction. The information derived from this survey provides the total joint surgeon with a compilation and consensus of responses that can serve as the foundation for a standardized postoperative protocol for THA and TKA surgery
