Hip replacements are conducted to relieve numerous medical conditions including hip fractures, malignant and benign tumors, avascular necrosis, and arthritis pain. Although hip replacement is a common orthopedic surgery, both short-term and long-term recovery vary as well as the recovery period amongst patients. Recovery involves intravenous antibiotics after surgery, medications to prevent blood clots, breathing exercises, and physical therapy as determined by the physician during the recovery period. Serious side effects/ risks are associated with hip replacements.
If you or a loved one has experienced any of the serious side effects, caused by a hip replacement, please contact The Law Center. Fill out the form or call 866-465-1419 to learn if you are eligible to join a hip replacement lawsuit.
