Below are a few of the complications that can arise from hip replacement surgery:
- Defective Hip Replacements
If a defective or faulty hip implant is used it is unlikely to last as long as usual so more surgery is required to remove and replace the defective or broken implant.
- Securing the Hip Implant
If the hip implant is not fitted properly during the original surgery the implant could become loose much sooner than the normal life expectancy of 10-20 years.
- Wrong sized Hip Implant
"An implant of the wrong size can lead to on-going severe pain, discomfort and cause mobility problems."
