Can you resume sporting activities after undergoing hip surgery?


There are many athletes who have previously undergone hip surgery and as a result have managed to prolong their professional careers.

This week, Andy Murray announced that he had undergone hip resurfacing surgery in the hope that he would be able to compete in his last ever tournament at Wimbledon before retiring later this year. The British athlete had surgery on his right hip in January last year and played 15 matches since returning to the sport last June.

Mr Robert Marston, expert Orthopaedic Consultant from our leading London Hip Specialists unit, joined BBC News at One on Tuesday 29 January, to discuss the likeliness of Andy playing competitive tennis again and speaking of his surgery said, “It’s not beyond the bounds of possibility that Andy Murray could get back to competitive tennis.”

Last year, American Tennis player Bob Bryan managed to reach the last eight of the Australian Open with his twin brother Mike, five months after undergoing the same hip resurfacing operation.
