Who Has the Highest Risk for Complications from Hip Implants?

Has your doctor recommended a hip implant? Are you worried that replacing your hip joint with an implant will cause more trouble than you already have? Though hip implants can create problems for any patient, there are certain groups who are at a greater risk than others. If you fall into any of these categories, you need to carefully consider all of your options before committing to hip replacement surgery.

Women

Research has shown that women are at a higher risk for failure of hip implants. The percentage is actually quite substantial, with nearly 30% more women in the United States suffering hip implant failure than men. Medical professionals are unsure exactly what causes this higher failure rate, but some believe it could be due to the smaller stature of a woman’s body.

Inactive Patients

Patients who are unwilling or unable to participate in physical therapy following their hip replacement procedure will have a tougher time recovering from the procedure. Even if you are able to perform physical therapy exercises, it can still be detrimental if you are relatively inactive after the physical therapy phase has passed. If you have a hip implant and you are concerned about staying healthy and extending the life of the implant, speak to your doctor about a gentle exercise program. Just a short walk each day should be enough to keep you feeling healthy and strong with your implant.

Overweight Patients

Unfortunately, some of the same issues that caused your natural joint to wear out could affect your implant device. If you are overweight, the likelihood of your implant wearing out is greater than it is for patients who maintain a healthy weight. Your doctor likely recommended weight loss prior to the placement of your implant. It might have been an alternative to surgery. Even if you decided surgery was the best option for you, you should do all you can to drop the excess pounds. It will extend the life of your implant and improve your overall health.

Older Patients

Older patients sometimes have a difficult time bouncing back from implant surgery. There are even times when doctors do not recommend surgery because they are concerned about a patient’s ability to heal.

Younger Patients

As unusual as it may be, the age of a patient can be a problem for younger patients, too. Hip implants do not last forever. When an implant is placed too soon, a patient can outlast the life of the implant. Doctors do their best to choose a window of time in a person’s life when they stand the best chance of recovering from surgery, but are unlikely to outlive their implant.
