Is an Implant a Last Resort for Curing Hip Pain?

The simple answer to this question is: Yes, a hip implant should be the last resort for curing chronic hip pain. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Many patients want a quick-fix for a problem and choose surgery to alleviate pain. When this quick-fix philosophy is applied to hip replacement surgery it can lead to more problems than the initial hip pain. What are the downsides of hip replacement surgery?

When the surgery is performed on a younger patient, it increases the likelihood of a second surgery later in life. Hip implants are not designed to last forever. The typical lifespan of an implant device is about 20 years. This means if you have your implant installed before the age of 55, there is a fairly good chance it will wear out within your lifetime.

Hip replacement surgery is less effective if other health issues are not resolved before the implant is installed. Many people opt for surgery because they believe it will take care of the problem completely and there will be little left for them to do. Unfortunately, if there were solvable problems that led to needing a hip implant, those same problems will damage the implant once it is installed.

Take excess body weight as an example. If losing weight can ease the pain caused by osteoarthritis in your hip, it is important to try weight loss as a first line of defense. When you choose an implant and remain overweight, you are asking for a tough recovery and you are damaging the implant, just as your damaged your natural hip.

Hip implant surgery can trigger side effects and is a major surgical procedure. Surgery should always be your last resort, if only because you want to avoid the most common side effects associated with any medical procedure. When you undergo surgery, you are putting your body at risk. You could react poorly to the anesthesia or have a reaction to the implant device. Surgery can trigger an infection in the body and it requires a long recovery period. There is no sense exposing your body to these risks unless absolutely necessary.

If you are having issues with chronic pain in your hip joint and you believe surgery might be an option, do your research. You should try all other treatment options available before committing to a surgical procedure. Weight loss and supplements might be enough to alleviate the need for surgery or at least postpone the procedure until you are within the range of time in which only one surgery will be needed during your life.
