Frequently Asked Questions:

What happens if my hip implant is degraded?

No surgery is 100% guaranteed, and hip replacements are no exception. While the goal is that a hip replacement will last the course of your natural life, that isn’t always the case. It’s not unusual for hip replacements to last only 15-20 years, and if you need a hip replacement at an early age, you may end up requiring a second hip replacement surgery. Hip replacement surgeries can last for much less time than that, depending on a myriad of factors that impact your mobility and the health of your joints.

If a hip implant gets so degraded that you need a second surgery, there are two conventional options. Either your doctor will replace the hip implant with an entirely new one (the equivalent of a second brand new hip replacement), or he/she will perform a revision surgery, which is intended to fix some smaller portion of your hip implant. Revision surgeries range in complexity depending on the issue that you’re dealing with. Your surgery could be relatively simple, for example, if the issue is that a piece of the implant needs to be lengthened or readjusted. If you have fallen or fractured a bone in the hip area, however, the surgery is much more complex and can pose greater risks to your health.

There are several risk factors that have been flagged as likely to cause a second hip replacement or revision surgery. Some risk factors (such as age and height) can’t be avoided, so it’s important to remember those risks and take appropriate countermeasures, but there isn’t much you can do about how tall you are. Your doctor may choose a different surgical approach, for example, if your height causes concern about the long term viability of a hip implant. Some risk factors, such as your weight and activity level, are things that you can control, so you should work with your doctor to find the best ways to relieve some of that risk. The heavier you are, for example, the more stress you put on every joint in your body. That extra weight makes it a lot more likely that you’ll need a hip revision surgery or second hip replacement down the road. Working with your doctor in consultations before you undergo hip replacement surgery is extremely important, because you can identify the risk factors that are relevant to your lifestyle and work to proactively protect yourself from complications.
