How Long Will My Hip Implant Last?

Hip replacement surgery is the right solution for many people suffering from hip arthritis and pain. Hip replacements replace the natural hip joint that wears out over time, but these replacement pieces can also wear out. If you undergo hip replacement surgery, the replacement mechanism is not as durable as your natural joint. Eventually, you may need to undergo an additional replacement procedure.

Hip replacements are made from metal, plastic, or a combination of the two materials. Some are made with ultra-durable materials and last longer than standard models, but they still wear out eventually. The medical community is constantly trying to improve the durability of joint replacement materials, but there are still no guarantees when you undergo surgery.

The average replacement lasts approximately 15 to 20 years. Older patients have slightly better durability odds than younger ones, but research has show the majority of hip replacements were still going strong after 15 years of use. Remember, this date refers to the majority of hip replacements, so you should not assume your case will mimic this exactly. There are patients who need additional replacement surgery after just a few years and there are others who need only one surgery during their entire life. Second surgeries are very rare within the first five years after initial surgery, with only about 2% of people needing a second surgery that soon.

There are a number of things affecting the longevity of a replacement device. Some are within your control, while others are not. If you are considering hip replacement surgery, speak with your doctor about what you can do to extend the life of your replacement mechanism. Hip surgery is a major medical undertaking, so it is important to do all you can to avoid a second replacement surgery.

What can you do to lengthen the life of your hip replacement device?

•    Watch your weight. Patients who are overweight are more likely to need hip replacement surgery and once they receive a replacement, their excess weight causes the same strain on the artificial joint. If you are carrying around excess pounds, make it a goal to reach a healthy weight and improve the chances your hip replacement device will last a long time.
•    Your activities can also affect wear and tear on your artificial hip joint. Speak with your doctor about what activities you should limit following replacement surgery.
•    Your age and your current medical condition can also affect the durability of your joint replacement. You cannot control your age, but you can aim for a healthy lifestyle after your surgery. A hip replacement offers a second chance at living a fulfilling, active life, so do all you can to make the most of your surgery.
