Frequently Asked Questions:

Hip replacement surgery can be problematic for particularly young candidates, but it can also be difficult for elderly patients. In youthful patients, the problem is that candidates will likely have to undergo two or three more surgeries over the course of their lifetime. Doctors usually refer to patients over 80 as elderly patients. When dealing with elderly patients, degradation in muscle and bones can make successful surgery more difficult. Elderly patients are also more prone to complications from surgery, which can make doctors hesitant to perform a traditional hip replacement. One good option for elderly patients in need of a hip replacement or adjustment may be microsurgery/minimally invasive surgery. These are often chosen because they subject the body to less stress, and leave more bone and muscle intact.

A study published in 2008 showed that elderly patients recovered well from hip replacements in the long term, though short term recovery can be particularly difficult. One difficulty that can present itself is the struggle of dealing with mental confusion. If your parent or spouse is dealing with mental confusion or senility, surgery and the recovery period can be extremely traumatizing for a senior who doesn’t know where he or she is. That can also complicate the recovery period, as the senior may be unable to adequately engage in physical therapy. Experts isolate something called the perioperative pain protocol as essential to any successful hip replacement in an elderly patient. This protocol combines peremptory pain medication with nausea medication and a process called early ambulation. The combination of these three things has greatly reduced the difficulties that an elderly patient faces after a hip replacement, decreasing pain and nausea. Encouraging early ambulation means that the patient gets out of bed and begins light exercise and physical therapy as soon as possible after the surgery.

The success of a hip replacement in an elderly patient depends, much like in a regular patient, on the physical and mental condition of the patient prior to the surgery. Because the process can be so stressful, doctors tend to be extremely selective about the elderly candidates they choose to perform a hip replacement on. For seniors without a comprehensive support system, surgery may not be the best choice. If the hip pain is so severe that it can’t be managed with pain medication and is severely impeding the patient’s quality of life, surgery becomes a much better option. Even if the senior has a shorter life outlook, surgery may be chosen as a way to remedy a dramatic reduction in quality of life.
