Prevention of surgical risks & infections

Prevention of surgical risks

Your security is our priority. We enforce all official recommendations to minimize the risks associated with surgery and stay current with the latest developments in the scientific literature. Although it is relatively rare to suffer from a complication during or after the surgery, risk zero does not exist. Possible adverse events during joint replacement surgery include but are not limited to :

  • Hematoma (5%)
  • Residual symptoms (1 to 7% depending on the type of surgery)
  • A longer recovery time than expected (1 to 3% depending on the type of surgery)
  • Infection (<1%)
  • Allergy to one of the components of the prosthesis (<0.5%)
  • Fracture (<0.5%)
  • Phlebitis (<0.5%)
  • Prosthetic dislocation (hip prosthesis) (<0.5%)
  • The occurrence of a nerve or vascular lesion (<0.5%)
  • Complications related to anesthesia (<0.2%)
  • Implant loosening (rare, depending on life expectancy and patient activity level)
