Hip Replacement Complications

Hip replacement surgery is the removal of a hip joint which is then replaced with a prosthetic implant. Among the most common surgeries in the UK, hip replacement can involve either the removal and replacement of part or all of the hip joint.
Often hip replacement surgery happens because of pain and mobility difficulties so it’s particularly distressing when there are surgical complications as a result of a metal on metal hip replacement or medical negligence.

Metal On Metal Hip Replacement

When both parts of the artificial hip, the ball and the socket, are metal, problems can arise as a result of tiny metallic particles being released when the parts rub together. This can lead to inflammation, damage to the surrounding tissue, pain, and non-cancerous tumours.
In particular, the DePuy ASR type of metal hip replacement has an uncommonly high failure rate and has been recalled by the manufacturer. If you have a DePuy metal on metal hip replacement, you should contact us for advice on making a personal injury compensation claim.

Regardless of the type of metal hip you have, you should still contact us because of the potential danger this device poses. The UK’s Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Authority (MHRA) has issued a warning on the possible health risks posed by all metal on metal hips, not simply those manufactured by DePuy.

Our personal injury solicitors will advise you on making a hip replacement compensation claim, and provide you with No Win No Fee legal support to help ensure a successful outcome for your case.

Faulty Hip Replacement Claims

Sometimes a non-metal on metal hip replacement surgery leads to complications too, as a result of a medical person’s negligence. This can cause a great deal of discomfort, pain and financial worry especially if you’re unable to work because of the personal injury.

Common hip replacement problems include:
•    Dislocation
•    Infection
•    Embolism
•    Leg length discrepancy leading to revision hip surgery
•    Vascular injuries
•    Loosening of the artificial hip

If you’re suffering from a faulty hip replacement injury or have concerns about your prosthetic hip, we will work hard to prove you have received an acceptable standard of medical care and to secure you the compensation you deserve.
