What are the chances that I will need a repeat surgery in future ?

The typical longevity of a Hip replacement depends upon- quality of bone/ level of physical activity/ Age/ body weight/ technique of surgery. Most hip replacements survive an average of 15-20 years. However, a large number of variables affecting longevity prevents accurate survival analysis. Individual patient assessment should be done carefully, and the risk- benefit analysis should be explained to the patient before surgery.
