FAQ


Hip replacement is a common and usually successful surgery, but it comes with a time limit.  No hip replacement lasts forever, and for many patients, there is a chance they will have to have their original replacement removed and a new one put in its place.  One possible reason for revision surgery is that the original surgery was imperfectly done.  If the joint is not aligned correctly, this can result in frequent dislocations or a poor range of motion that makes it difficult to perform ordinary movements.  A more common reason is the original replacement wearing out over time.  Hip replacements are cemented to the bone or pressed into place in such a way that they fit tightly.  Over time, repetitive motion and pressure may stop them from fitting tightly. This can result in the cement wearing down and the bone immediately adjacent to the implant being damaged. As the person moves, the implants will move slightly relative to the original bone instead of staying perfectly still.  This can cause pain, make it difficult to get around, and make dislocation more likely.                                                      
A typical lifespan of a well performed implant is about 10 to 20 years, but the amount can vary widely.  A person can slow down the process of wear by avoiding high-impact activities like running and by maintaining a healthy weight, since being overweight places extra pressure on the joint.  The originators of hip replacement systems strive to make their products last as long as possible by making the surfaces that come into contact wear as little as possible.                                                                                                                                                                 
People may also need a revision if their metal-on-metal hip is causing metal toxicity.  In this case the components can be replaced with ceramic or plastic ones.  Performing revisions is more difficult than original hip replacements, and it is often done by revision specialists.  This is because the original components must be removed without damaging or fracturing bone, bone that has been damaged must be removed, and a new, often more radical artificial hip must be inserted.  Since doctors must cut through muscle and other tissue to get at the bone, the more times the procedure has to be done, the more scar tissue it will create.
The younger a patient is, the more likely that they will need one or more revision surgeries in the future.  Doctors can get around this by initially inserting a more conservative hip resurfacing, which preserves healthy bone and can be replaced by a conventional hip replacement system instead of something more radical.
