I was anticipating that hip replacement would cost a large sum of money but not this much. I read this article at http://www.digitaljournal.com/pr/1028474 that although the surgery may be successful, some hip devices may cause certain potentially life-altering complications. Is it really worth spending a lot for short-lived relief which could be replaced with possibly permanent damage?
