Joint Replacement Risks

There are risks associated with any anaesthetic or surgical procedure and some which are specifically associated with having a hip or knee replacement. Below are comprehensive documents outlining the potential risks of each procedure, but these will be discussed in full during your consultation with Mr Simon Bridle and he is always on hand if you have further questions before you make the decision to go ahead with joint replacement at this stage.

If you’re contemplating joint replacement surgery, then another useful resource is the Patient Decision Support Tool for Joint Replacement produced by the National Joint Registry (NJR) to help you understand the risks from surgery.
