Risks and Complications
Robotic-assisted hip replacement surgery has a high success rate with positive patient outcomes. However, as with all surgical procedures, robotic hip surgery also has potential risks and complications. Some risks of surgery include:
- Blood clot formation (DVT or PE)
- Allergy to anesthesia
- Wear of hip implants
- Bone formation in soft tissues (heterotopic ossification)
Your surgeon will discuss with you the risks and benefits of the procedure, based on your medical history and unique situation. Surgery is only recommended if benefits outweigh the potential risks.
