FAQ

Risks and Complications of Hip Replacement Surgery
As with all joint replacement surgeries, total hip replacement carries its own risks and complications. It is important to fully discuss the risks and complications of the surgery with your surgeon ahead of time, as well as any risks associated with not undergoing the surgery.
Listed below are several of the serious risks associated with total hip replacement surgery:
Joint dislocation

Dislocation is a common complication for patients who have undergone hip replacement surgery. During the procedure, the femoral head is removed from the hip socket, and replaced with an artificial hip implant. It can generally take about eight to 12 weeks for the surrounding tissue to heal from this intensive surgical procedure. During this time, the artificial hip ball can become dislocated from the socket.

The more tissue that surrounds the joint that is damaged or cut during the surgery, the more vulnerable the joint is to dislocation. Often the more experienced a surgeon is at performing these types of surgeries, the fewer patients the surgeon has that will suffer a dislocation. Keep in mind that patients can also decrease their chances of risking a dislocated hip joint by ensuring their leg remains out of certain positions during the first months following surgery, allowing the bone and tissues to heal properly and grow stronger. Patients who drink alcohol during the recovery period after surgery also tend to have an increased risk of suffering a dislocation.

Osteolysis
Over a long period of time, hip replacement patients may experience problems when bits of plastic, metal and other debris come off their artificial hip joint through normal wear and tear. This can cause inflammation that can lead to a loosening of the hip implant and possibly bone fractures around the artificial joint. Ceramic pieces can break, causing a major health crisis, in about 2 percent of cases. Metal-on-metal hip implants can release shards of metal into the body over time, and polyethylene, or plastic, liners can crack and have been found to sometimes break apart from the metal hip socket.

Metal sensitivity
Some people are allergic to metals, which can cause hives, eczema, redness and itching, as well as immune reactions. For some metal-sensitive patients, about 1-3 percent, suffer from so much pain and become so disabled that they require a hip revision surgery. Many orthopedic surgeons are opting for hip implants that are made of metal with plastic linings to help reduce the problem in patients.

Nerve palsy
Patients who have previously suffered a nerve injury are at a greater risk for suffering a post-operative sciatic nerve injury.

Chronic pain
A few patients suffer from chronic pain after hip replacement surgery, including bursitis and groin pain.

Leg length inequality
One of the most common problems patients report is that one leg is longer than the other. Sometimes this is only a problem perceived by the patient and the legs are actually equal in length. When a patient suffers from an arthritic hip joint, it can restrict leg movement and feel as though the leg is shorter than it actually is. After surgery, the leg may feel unequal because it is now functioning normally. In cases of a true leg length inequality, it is caused by the use of an improperly sized hip implant.
