FAQ

Can Hip Replacements Get Infected?

An infection related to a hip implant is one of the main causes implants must be removed or replaced. The majority of implant patients experience few problems, but there are occasional problems that can be serious.

Symptoms of an Infection

Most of the time infection occurs within a few weeks of surgery. One of the first symptoms of infection is drainage. This occurs in the area near the replacement, but it may not be immediately visible. This type of infection happens within days or weeks following the surgical procedure. It can begin with redness or swelling and progress to visible yellow or whitish fluid coming from the incision areas. This can be one of the early signs of a serious problem, so you need to alert your doctor before it spreads throughout your body.

Another symptom of infection is continued pain that makes recovery very difficult. An infection causes bacteria to build up and this causes pain. Some patients find the pain associated with an infection is worse than what they experienced prior to the implant operation. An infection can also trigger an abscess, which occurs when the infection is centered in one place.

One of the last stages of an infection is fever. This is an indication the infection has spread beyond the area surrounding the hip joint to the rest of the body. Usually a fever of more than 100 degrees F is an indication there is a problem. When the bacteria from the initial infection spread to the bloodstream, it is known as systemic and can lead to serious complications. There have even been instances in which systemic infections have been fatal. If you are feeling feverish and your temperature rises over 100 degrees, notify your doctor immediately.

Am I Ever Safe from Infection?

Infection can occur at any time over the life of your hip replacement, but it is most common during the first few weeks after the operation. This is because most infections related to hip replacements are a result of the surgery and not the implant itself. However, there are instances in which the infection occurs years later.

Hip implant devices wear down over time and what was once a successful implant can begin to cause problems down the line. If you experience any of the traditional symptoms of an infection or something seems to have changed with your health, contact your doctor immediately. Sudden pain or discomfort is a sign something is wrong and it might be time to schedule a revision surgery or have a new implant installed.
