FAQ

Am I Too Young for Hip Replacement?

Hip replacement surgery is typically associated with older adults, but there are cases when people in their middle age years, or even younger, need hip replacements. Most of the time hip replacement is needed because of hip arthritis, but there are instances in which injuries are the factor. Unfortunately, hip replacement is not always the best option for younger patients. Even if the replacement would ease the pain, a long-term replacement can be more trouble than it is worth. What factors help you determine if you are too young for a hip replacement?

Lifetime of the Replacement Device

The biggest issue with installing a hip replacement for a young patient is the length of time it takes the implant device to wear out. No matter the health or lifestyle of the patient, or the quality of the implant, it will eventually wear out with use. Like anything, hip implants are not permanent. When they are installed at a younger age, the implant has to work longer, increasing the odds it will eventually wear out while it is still needed.

Unfortunately, revision surgery, which is what is required when hip replacement surgery is needed a second time, is a more dangerous procedure than the original replacement operation. It can also leave a patient with significantly impaired mobility. Patients should do all they can to avoid a second surgery, even if it means postponing surgery and managing pain in a different manner.

Benefits for Younger Patients

Aside from the length of time the implant is in use, there are benefits of having an implant installed at a younger age. The sooner an implant is placed the quicker a patient can get back to living and moving without discomfort. Many hip replacement patients feel they wasted years of time putting off their replacement.

Younger patients typically heal faster. This means if you are concerned about side effects and physical therapy after your surgery, you will have less to worry about if you undergo surgery as a younger patient. You are stronger and able to bounce back sooner than if you postponed surgery. Early surgery also gives the implant more time to fuse with your bones and work naturally.

Only you and your doctor can determine whether it is best to undergo surgery now or postpone it until you are older. It is a personal choice and there are things about your health and lifestyle that need to be considered. If you have concerns or questions, speak with your doctor and decide what option is best for you.
