FAQ      
Hip replacement is a frequently performed surgery that usually has good results and allows the patient to live a fuller and more pain-free life.  But problems do occur. Sometimes the hip joint does not work out well and the patient experiences severe pain, infection of the new joint or change in leg length. Problems with artificial hips can sometimes necessitate a revision surgery, adding to the patient’s pain, inconvenience and missed work.  In some cases, patients who experience severe problems with their hip are eligible to sue for malpractice.                                                                                                                                                              
Every medical procedure has some risk of error, even if the doctor is highly skilled and performs it to the best of her ability. For this reason, proving malpractice involves more than just showing that the implant did not work out well.  There are three major claims one can make to prove malpractice.  One is that the surgeon should not have recommended surgery. Medical textbooks and other authoritative sources give recommendations for when a major surgery, including hip replacement, is necessary.  If you have osteoarthritis but your pain is well managed through medication and you are successfully living an active life, you are not considered a good candidate for surgery. Authorities recommend postponing hip replacement until it is truly necessary, to reduce the risk that the person will need a revision surgery.  If the doctor fails to obey reasonable medical guidelines in the recommendations they make and the procedures they perform, they may be guilty of malpractice.                                                                    
Another is that the surgeon did not provide all relevant information about the procedure.  When patients make decisions about what procedures to undergo, they rely on information from their doctor.  Doctors should always provide all the relevant information, including facts that might persuade patient not to get the procedure.  Giving a biased picture of the facts in hopes of getting revenue from the surgery is a violation of medical ethics.  If a doctor fails to tell a patient that hip replacements only last 10 to 20 years, they may be negligent because the patient might have delayed the surgery if they knew.                                                                                  
Finally, there is the possibility that the surgeon performed the surgery negligently. Some problems resulting from surgery are not the doctor’s fault. For instance, if you experience an allergic reaction to the implant, but no one could have known you had an allergy to the substance, the doctor was not negligent. However, suppose the doctor is performing minimally invasive hip replacement surgery and knows they cannot see the hip area well enough to implant the hip correctly unless they the size of the incision. If they fail to do it, and your hip ends up misaligned, they may be negligent.                                                                     
If you suspect negligence, the first step is to consult a lawyer and find out if they think you may have a case. If you do, the evidence for your case will come from your medical records, plus an expert medical witness who can testify about medical standards that your doctor failed to follow.
