Actually, I've read that older male patients, 55 years old and above, are also at a higher risk of developing hip replacement complications. The similarity between older male patients and female patients is that both have softer bones compared to younger, larger-built guys. This may be why they are prone to hip deterioration, bone loss, etc. I've read these info from http://www.rotlaw.com/hip-replacement-lawsuit...
