Minnesota Hip Replacement Surgery Attorney

If you have suffered significant hip damage from an accident, you may require hip replacement surgery.  Accidents include:

  • Motorcycle crash where the victim sustained numerous fractures of the left hip, including a femoral head fracture, and closed reduction surgery was performed. A second surgery is required where screws are used to hold large bone fragments in place, however the hip could not be stabilized so a third surgery is required to replace the hip.
  • Car crash where the victim sustained a dislocated left him and a comminuted fracture of the acetabula and posterior wall of the hip. The  victim completed eight months of rehabilitation but developed sciatic neuropathy in the right left and required a hip replacement.
  • Truck crash where the victim sustained a herniated disc, fractured pelvis and hip fracture, in addition to developing post-traumatic arthritis which required a hip replacement.

Complications with Hip Replacements

Some complications with hip replacements include:

  • Infection occurring at the incision and in the deep tissue near the new hip. Minor infections can be treated with antibiotics while major infections require additional surgery to remove and replace the prosthesis.
  • Stiff joints from the hardening of the soft tissue around the joint which presents difficulty in moving around.
  • Dislocating the new hip joint. Surgery may be required for stabilization if the artificial hip dislocates repeatedly.
  • Blood clots in the leg veins can develop if the leg is experiencing decreased movement after surgery. Prescribed blood-thinning medications can be used to prevent blood clots and compression stockings can be used to increase blood flow through the legs to reduce the risk of clots.
  • The healthy areas of the hip joint can fracture during surgery.
  • A second surgery can be required if the artificial hip breaks
  • The new hip could make the leg shorter or longer than the other.
  • A second hip replacement surgery can be required if the prosthetic hip joint wears out.
