There are many factors that determine the life of a hip implant, but recent medical advances have lengthened these lifespans. So how long can you expect a hip replacement to last?
A surgical treatment option for joint diseases, a hip replacement, can lead you back to an active lifestyle and relieve your pain. Your age, activity level, and body mass are all determining factors in the life of your implant. On average, most hip replacements can last anywhere from 15-20 years.
Some implants have wear-resistant material, giving them a longer lifespan. However, due to the uniqueness of each person’s body structure, it is difficult to gauge exactly how long an implant will last.
