Frequently Asked Questions:

How long does the average hip implant last?

Thousands of people across the country are living with such terrible daily pain that they decide to undergo a hip replacement surgery. Doctors often advise patients to wait as long as possible to receive a hip replacement, because the implants are only durable for so many years. Ideally, a patient could receive one hip replacement and be set for the duration of his or her natural life. Unfortunately, hip replacements don’t last long enough. In younger, active patients, they need to be replaced or revised every ten years. Each of these procedures is invasive surgery, followed by weeks or months of recovery and months of physical therapy. To undergo this process three or four times is not only frustrating, but extremely taxing on the body. In addition, medical bills are likely to mount up as time continues.

As time goes on, your body may need another hip replacement or revision in order to retain mobility and avoid pain. Even if it was a relatively well accepted practice to receive several hip replacements in one lifetime, it’s not possible. When a hip replacement is performed, bone and tissue are removed in order to properly place the hip implant. After one or two surgeries, the amount of available bone is greatly reduced. Each of the first two surgeries are likely to have a positive effect on the mobility of the patient. As each surgery takes place, tendons and ligaments are put under a great deal of strain, which becomes more strenuous with every surgery.

After the second surgery, hip replacement surgeries tend to be ineffective at best. In worst case scenarios, continuing to receive surgery after the second hip replacement can actually impede your mobility. The pain might be bad enough to cause a patient to opt for a third or fourth hip replacement, but that doesn’t mean that the surgery is necessarily going to be effective. Because revision surgery occurs so often, it seems to have gained popularity with patients, who believe that the surgery is not serious. In reality, surgeons and patients should be working together to cut down on the number of surgeries needed. A patient should also consider working with their physical therapist or regular doctor to find non-surgical alternatives to stop hip pain. There are many non-surgical treatments that can so drastically reduce hip pain that they may eradicate the need for an additional hip replacement. In addition, practices like regular exercise and losing weight (if medically approved) can decrease the risk of revision surgery.
