    Infected Hip Replacements

    Surgery of any type has the potential for infection - including hip replacements. Bacteria can attach to and around the area of the new prosthesis and present as a problem in the hospital, after going home and in some cases, many years later.

    The most common symptom being the pain, but the implant may also lose attachment to the bone causing instability and loss of mobility.
