When a hip replacement doesn't go as planned

A hip replacement surgery is meant to make your life better, to relieve you of pain and allow you to reclaim the mobility you have lost that has kept you from participating fully in your favorite activities.

Unfortunately, there are times when these procedures do not go as planned. For example, DePuy hip replacement surgeries resulted in a recall of approximately 90,000 units of hip implants.

There can be many issues for patients when hip replacement surgeries use equipment that winds up being recalled.

First and foremost, patients do not receive the relief they are seeking. Instead, they could end up in even more pain and then need to consider additional surgical options. Those might include replacing the defective unit and seeking relief from intractable pain.

Some of the most common symptoms associated with a defective implant include:

-- Clicking

-- Swelling

-- Popping

-- Discomfort that doesn't go away

-- Hip fracture

-- Dislocation of the implant

Many people think these symptoms are commonly associated with a hip replacement, but this isn't true. You don't have to accept this type of ongoing pain and discomfort. In fact, the entire reason for the procedure was to put you in a better place medically and increase your mobility.
