Problems associated with loose hip implants

Posted on August 16th, 2011 No Comments

Hip implants replace the ball and socket joint of the hip.  In order for these implants to stay in place, they must be attached to nearby bones as if they were the real hip joint.

In most cases, hip implants are either pressed or cemented onto the pelvic and femur bones.  If for some reason the hip implant loosens or comes out of place, there can be serious problems that prevent the hip from functioning normally.

The most common reasons a hip implant becomes loosened or moves out of place is that the hip implant is defective or it was not properly put in place by the surgeon.

Some of the problems one might encounter if they experience hip implant loosening include severe pain and swelling in the hip area, loss of movement of the hip and leg, and bone injuries or fractures.
