Hip Replacement Lawsuit Massachusetts

Is Hip Replacement Safe?

If a person is interested, he or she will find many stories about disastrous hip replacement surgery. It is a common malpractice issue and people who have undergone the procedure have experienced unexpected side effects and problems. However, there are also many people who are happy with the results of their surgery and some who even wish they had undergone surgery sooner.

Hip replacement is typically needed when a person suffers from osteoarthritis in the hip joint. Over time, arthritis damages the cartilage in the joint and the condition becomes increasingly painful. If other treatments do not work, a doctor typically recommends a replacement joint. If your doctor has suggested you consider hip replacement surgery, how can you be sure it is a safe procedure? What should you consider before undergoing hip replacement surgery?

General Surgery Risks

As with all surgeries, there can be complications. Your doctor will provide you with information about these problems, but expect to hear about blood clotting, anesthesia, and nerve damage. There can also be a lengthy recovery for this type of surgery, so be sure you are able to dedicate the time needed for physical therapy and rest after the procedure.

Potential Side Effects of Hip Replacement

Some people find their legs are uneven following their hip replacement surgery. Surgeons do all they can to prevent this, but adjustments are sometimes needed to ensure the implant fits snugly into the bone. There are things that can be done to ease the discomfort of un-evenness, but it is still a concern for many patients.

There are instances in which other bones are broken during the implant procedure. These bones heal, but it lengthens recovery time and can make the experience difficult. Your doctor will address any issues with you during the consultation phase, so you will have a fairly good idea if this will be a problem during the process.

Over time, hip replacement implants can loosen and break. This is one of the major concerns associated with hip replacement. When this occurs, revision surgery is necessary. This follow-up surgery is riskier than the installation of the initial implant and can leave a patient with a great deal less mobility. Before committing to hip replacement surgery, be sure you are absolutely sure it is your best option. If possible, postpone your surgery for a few years. This increases the possibility your implant will outlive you and there will be no need for an additional surgery.
