How Long Should My Hip Replacement Last?

Like everything, hip replacements eventually wear out. The key to having a successful implant experience is to do all you can to ensure your implant lasts as long as possible. Once an implant wears out, it becomes loose and many activities that were once possible are very painful. The procedure to fix the problem is more complicated than the initial placement of the implant, so you want to avoid it if possible.

Are you considering hip replacement surgery, but you are concerned it will not last your lifetime? Discuss these questions with your doctor:

•    Is now the best time for an implant? Am I too young?
•    Will I need to alter the activity associated with my work or hobbies?
•    What type of implant will last the longest and is it right for me?

There are a number of other factors to consider when making a decision about your implant surgery, but these questions are a great place to begin a discussion with your doctor.

Typically, hip replacement devices last about 20 years. Some wear out sooner and others last as much as 30 years or more. However, this varies from person to person and implant to implant. Your best bet is to have the implant placed as late in life as possible, but while you are still healthy enough to recover from the procedure. You want the implant to be worthwhile and give you many years of movement, but you do not want to install it so early that you are guaranteed a second operation later in life.

What Causes Hip Implants to Wear Out?

There are several reasons why hip implants wear out. Generally, wear and tear over the years causes the implant to break down. This is true for anything. The more something is used, especially when there is friction and movement involved, the faster it breaks down.

Hip implants can also become loose over time. This can occur because of the wearing down of the device or it can be caused by issues in the body. The bones and tissue near the implant can change over time, creating a looser attachment for the device. This causes pain and gradually reduces the ability a person has to move his or her body.

What Can be Done to Fix the Problem?

The most common option for fixing a hip implant once it breaks down is revision surgery. This is a riskier procedure than the initial placement of the device and it can result in limited range of motion.

Your best bet is to make smart choices right from the beginning. Choose the right hip implant for you and follow your doctor’s instructions to avoid the hastening of break down. With any luck, you will live a long, happy life with your original hip implant device.
