A total hip replacement is one of the most common joint replacement procedures. As a result of this demand, more patients are prone to developing side effects following this surgical procedure.
Side effects of a hip replacement are nerve injury (rare), breathing ailments, and prosthesis failure due to allergic reaction, wrong size, wear and tear, and possible bone issues that draw pressure toward the artificial hip assembly. The common side effects of a hip replacement are wound infection, bleeding, infection near the artificial joint, and blood clots.
