Myths about hip replacement surgery

Posted on June 21st, 2012 No Comments

Many people who need joint replacement surgeries are scared to even discuss the topic because they believe many things about the procedure that may not be true. This blog will discuss the myths that many have on these surgeries.

First, many people think that joint replacement surgeries only last for about 10 years and in today’s world this is not true. Hip and knee replacements are now made to last for much longer and have more effectiveness for each person that receives one.

Another common myth is that those who receive hip or joint replacement surgery will need a long period of time to recover. This also used to be true because patients would need about a week in the hospital to recover, but now patients can put pressure on the hip or knee within hours of surgery and are able to leave the hospital after 1 to 2 days.

Although this is true for most joint replacement surgeries, joint replacement systems made by DePuy Orthopaedics have recently been recalled because of the increased risk associated with the metal-on-metal hip replacement system.

If you have been injured from a hip replacement system and are seeking compensation from a DePuy lawsuit.
