Total Hip Replacement Surgery: The Process

When you are experiencing hip pain and decreased hip mobility, it may be due to a variety of factors. However, no matter what the cause of your situation is, if your hip problems are severe enough, you may need a total hip replacement. While this may seem frightening to some people, total hip replacement surgery is actually a very common procedure.

After hip replacement surgery, everyone hopes that they will experience relief and increased mobility. Unfortunately, if you receive a DePuy ASR hip replacement device, you may actually end up experiencing increased pain and more damaging side effects instead. If this happened to you, you should pursue compensation for your unnecessary, prolonged suffering. Contact a DePuy lawyer with Williams Hart at 800-761-3187 for more information.

Hip Replacement Surgical Procedures

If you are undergoing total hip replacement surgery, the process is the same as many other common surgeries. Typically a surgeon will complete the following steps:

  • Surgery Preparation – Typically, prior to surgery, you will be evaluated by an orthopedic surgeon and have a series of tests run.
  • Surgery – You will be anesthetized prior to the surgery, which normally takes a few hours to complete. During the surgery the doctor will surgically remove damaged tissue, cartilage, and bone and replace it with the hip implant.
  • Surgery Recovery – You will likely spend a few days in the hospital, and during this time your health will be monitored and you may even begin physical therapy.

Sadly, although your surgical procedures may have been a success, the actual hip implant you received may not be providing you with the benefits you were expecting, and may even cause you harm.
