What Are The Risks Of Total Hip Replacement?

Total hip replacement is a major operation. The effect of most complications is simply that the patient stays in the hospital longer. The most common complications are not directly related to the hip and do not usually affect the result of the operation. These include

  • Blood clots in the leg
  • Blood clots in the lung
  • Urinary infections or difficulty in urinating
  • Complications that affect the hip are very un common, but in these cases, the operation may not be as successful
    • Difference in leg length
    • Stiffness
    • Dislocation of hip (ball pops out of socket)
    • Infection in hip

A few of the complications, such as infection or dislocation, may require re-operation.
