FAQ
All medical procedures come with benefits and risks, but hip replacement in particular has the potential to be both high risk and high reward.  The benefit is the disappearance of pain and immobility caused by arthritis in the hip joint. But there are a variety of dangers to consider.   Some dangers are common to all surgeries.  One is infection: The surgical site can become infected with germs and fail to heal properly. Another is blood clots.  When you are immobile for a long time during and after surgery, your blood is unable to circulate as it usually does, and so the anticoagulant components do not get distributed the way they usually do, making clots more likely to form. In deep vein thrombosis, they become wedged in the veins of the leg or hip. This can lead to pain, swelling and numbness, and can be fatal if the clot breaks off and cuts off blood flow to the heart, lungs or brain.                                                      
Another problem that can occur during surgery is fracture; since doctors are cutting into the bone, they can stress it in such a way that tiny fractures develop. If these are too large to heal on their own, doctors may insert pins or screws.  Any change in the complex interplay of bones, tendons and muscles can cause problems.  Doctors strive to perform hip replacements in such a way that leg lengths stay the same, but because of the way muscles can become weaker after surgery, one leg may become shorter. Special exercises may correct this.
Hip dislocation is a serious problem that can result if the joint is not perfectly aligned. Artificial hips typically have a smaller range of motion than a real hip, and can also be prone to dislocation if they are imperfectly installed.  Patients will be advised to avoid placing their hips in certain positions, but if the problem persists, they made need corrective surgery.
Another problem is loosening. Over time, the implant may become less securely cemented to the bone, requiring a replacement implant.                                                                                             
Finally, as the artificial hip moves, it creates wear, causing particles to come loose and enter the surrounding area.  Metal particles can irritate and inflame the surrounding tissue and cause them to form pseudo-tumors that can press on blood vessels.  And the metal particles can enter the bloodstream, causing a systemic toxicity known as metallosis. If this happens the only cure is to replace the hip with one that does not contain so much metal.
