FAQ

How Long Hip Implants Last
Artificial hip implants often last between 15 to 20 years, but usually longer, depending on several factors. Many patients who are active are still using hip implants that were implanted as many as 30 to 40 years earlier. The life span of a hip implant, following total hip replacement surgery, will vary, depending on the patient’s physical health, both the condition of the patient’s bones and whether he or she is physically active and maintains a healthy weight.

Artificial hips are very durable but they still experience wear and tear, just like your real joints. Hip implants have a ball and socket structure, and the continual rubbing of the ball head against the metal or ceramic cup, or socket, can cause problems that might require the socket to be replaced. One of the biggest problems that occurs after hip replacement surgery is a loosening of the artificial joint. It can occur most often with hip patients who are particularly active and participate in high impact activities, such as basketball, weightlifting and running. When a patient undergoes hip replacement surgery, his or her orthopedic surgeon will likely advise avoiding any high impact activities that would cause unnecessary wear and tear on the joint. This doesn’t mean that a hip patient can’t exercise; there are still many ways to incorporate exercise into daily life. Walking, bicycling and swimming are usually recommended as activities that place less impact on the artificial hip joint.
If problems occur with your hip implant, resulting in a loose fit or pain, it’s possible that your orthopedic surgeon will recommend a second surgery, called revision surgery.
Younger, active patients have a higher rate of revision, as do obese patients, due to the higher rate of wear and loosening. Some hip conditions, such as inflammatory arthritis, avascular necrosis and patients with a previous hip fracture, can be at greater risk for loosening.

When a hip implant becomes loose, the joint can become painful, deformed or unstable. It also weakens and may even fracture the bone, which could compromise the success of a revision surgery. The most common form of hip replacement failure is aseptic loosening.
Other causes of implant failure can include infection and dislocation of the artificial joint. Since the implants are foreign objects, it can serve as a surface that attracts bacteria. As the hip and surrounding tissue recovers from the trauma of surgery, it can have difficulty fighting infection. Dislocation of the artificial joint occurs in about one out of every 50 patients. While joint replacement is successful in an overwhelming number of patients, hip implants can sometimes fail and revision surgery may be required. Because of many factors, it can be difficult to predict how long a hip implant will last in a patient.
