The life of any joint replacement will depend on your weight, age, activity level, and other factors. Individual results may vary. Only an orthopaedic surgeon can decide if hip replacement surgery is right for you. Hip replacement surgery may be associated with serious complications including but not limited to component breakage, corrosion; wear or loosening; bone fracture or bone loss; infection; nerve damage; blood clots in the legs and/or lungs; and hip pain or stiffness. Complications may require medical intervention including additional surgery, and in rare cases, may lead to death. For more information, consult your doctor.
