Hip replacement is a highly invasive surgery that has a higher risk of complication than other less invasive surgeries. Serious complications can arise when the implant fails prematurely, requiring corrective surgery to implant a new replacement. Replacing the hip implant is a surgery that is considered highly difficult and risky because surgeons must work around a significant amount of scar tissue.
