Complications associated with hip replacement devices are not that common. However, they do exist. So, whoever wants to have their hips replaced should carefully consider the possible repercussions. I've read on that complications can range from a simple hip pain to a serious complication known as tissue necrosis.

Its rings of truth. Deciding on getting a surgery, be it a hip replacement or something else, shouldn't be rushed. There are many factors that need to be considered and the benefits and risks are the first on the list. Hip replacement surgical procedures are generally safe but I read from a site called the DePuy Hip Recall Information Center that certain complications may also arise from artificial hip joints.
