Abstract Definitive characterization of the effects of golf on a total joint replacement remains elusive. However, from our study of active golfers and solicitation of the opinions of orthopedists who specialize in joint replacements, and from a careful review of the literature regarding exercise and total joint replacement, it appears possible for patients to remain active golfers with no significant increase in either symptoms or rates of revision of implants following total hip, knee, or shoulder replacement.
