Depuy Hip Replacement Recall Lawsuit
There are many reasons why a person would require hip replacement surgery. Injury or disease can damage a hip joint so that it doesn’t function correctly and can give pain. Mobility is affected when the hip joint is giving someone problems. A hip that is not working right can adversely affect a person’s entire lifestyle.
Diseases Affecting the Hip Joint
The medical condition called osteoarthritis is a common reason for hip replacement. This disease is a type of arthritis where the joint becomes inflamed due to smooth cartilage wearing away on the ends of the bones. The bones of the joint then rub against one another. Pain and stiffness can be severe and the hip joint can even become deformed. Total hip replacement may be necessary in these cases.
Other kinds of arthritis can also necessitate hip replacement. In rheumatoid arthritis, the lining of the joint has inflammation. A doctor can determine in these cases if surgery and hip replacement is the right solution. Removing the damaged hip joint and replacing it with an artificial hip can improve conditions immensely.
Another disease which can require hip surgery is osteonecrosis. When the hip joint is affected, blood to the bone is cut off and the bone actually dies. Getting an artificial hip can relieve the pain and lack of mobility resulting from this disease, particularly when it drastically affects your lifestyle.
Factors to Consider Before Surgery
Of course, fractures and other serious injuries as well as bone tumors, can be a reason a physician would recommend hip replacement. A full examination is needed to find out the cause of the trouble and then to decide upon the best course of action.
There are many factors that a surgeon must consider prior to moving forward with a full hip replacement. The elderly are the highest percentage of those who receive hip replacement because their brittle bones make it easier to break the hip. But age is not so much a factor as a person’s general health, the extent of their disability and how much pain they experience. Many young people turn to hip replacement so they can maintain proper function and their quality of life.
Some Will Not Qualify for Hip Replacement
There are those who should definitely not receive hip replacement and the surgeon will screen all patients. Those who have severe problems with muscle weakness or those with infections or a high risk of getting infections would very likely not qualify for this type of surgery. Other conditions are also taken into account if the surgeon were to consider a metal-on-metal hip replacement device.
A patient whose doctor recommends hip replacement surgery can be assured that their physician is aware of the potential risks and that he or she thinks that the risks would not outweigh the benefits. Hip replacement surgery, when needed, certainly makes life easier and more comfortable.
