The primary research question of this study is: to what extent does postoperative facilitation of early mobilization impact on recovery of functional walking capacity at 4 weeks after surgery in comparison to standard care (preoperative education). The hypothesis is that, by 4 weeks after surgery, facilitated early mobilization will result in a greater proportion of participants returning to preoperative levels of functional walking, as measured by the six-minute walk test (6MWT).
