Surgeon left P.T. to decide protocol. Currently in the middle of a E.B.P. literature review, does anyone have any suggestions of a W.B. protocol, why this operation is chosen or literature that is relevant. Thanks

We full WB these type of prostheses - this is surgeons protocol. TWB or NWB if uncemented femoral component. Due to anatomical configuration and compression forces from Wbing - there is no concern for movement etc of acetabular component
