What is one of the most serious problems that can happen after knee or hip implant surgery? A dangerous infection.
These infections are caused by bacteria that can infect wounds after surgery, sometimes even months or years later. A patient with one of these infections may go through painful cleaning of the wound, more surgery, powerful antibiotics, and may even have to have the implant removed. This is a lot to deal with after already having already gone through knee or hip implant surgery.
The worst part is that most of the time, all of this pain and suffering could have been avoided. Hard working doctors and nurses do their best to keep patients safe, but sometimes things happen that are outside of their control. Sometimes patients get terrible infections that should never have happened.
