FAQ

Demographics of Those Who Require Hip Replacements
In the United States alone, up to 300,000 hip replacements are done each year.  How do these numbers break down among the population and who is the most at risk for needing a hip replacement? In this article we will take a look at some of the demographics of those who require hip replacements and what some of the cause are associated with those demographics.

Main Reasons for Needing Hip Replacements
First we will look at the two main reasons that hip replacements are needed by hundreds of thousands of people each year. Although there can be other possible scenarios, such as car accidents or other rare instances, most hip replacements can be attributed to two things.

Degenerative Joint Disorders
Arthritis is the most common degenerative joint disease among humans. It cause severe joint pain and discomfort and can continue to progress over time. One way to stop the pain of arthritis in the hip is to replace it with an implant such as a metal-on-metal hip replacement.

Limited Life Expectancy of the Implant
Hip replacement implants, like any non-biological replacement part of the body, have a limited lifespan. The materials will wear just like the bone and tissue did over a period of time. Doctors have typically tried to put patients off from getting a hip replacement for as long as possible so that they don’t have to replace the original hip replacement after a few decades of wear and tear. Improper initial placement of the hip replacements and wearing down of the plastics or metals that they are made of can cause a need to replace the implants.

So Who is Receiving a Hip Replacement?
Most of the patients that are receiving a hip replacement are 60 years or older, with main reason behind this being old age. Degenerative joint disorders are more commonly found in populations over the age of 60. In the past, doctors have tried to minimize doing hip surgery too early to avoid having to go in a second time to do another replacement or an adjustment. This creates more strain on the patient and requires another surgery, which can be taxing physically and emotionally.

However, patients are more active than ever and are less able to tolerate to years of pain while waiting for an optimal time for hip replacement. As science and technology progress, doctors are now more confident in doing hip replacement surgery earlier. Newer hip replacements are lasting much longer than the original prosthesis’ used in the 1960s. This is also increasing the number of hip replacements done each year in the United States as patients demand a better quality of life sooner rather than later.

There are many different types of hip replacement implants. Patients usually get to choose between metal-on-metal, ceramic-on-ceramic, plastic-on-plastic or some sort of hybrid implant. The type of hip replacement implant usually is determined by patient needs and issues such as sensitivity to specific materials. Most hip replacement implants will last between 10-25 years.
