Medical Questions

Questions you may be asked when seeking Travel Insurance after a Hip Replacement include:

  • Why was the joint replacement or resurfacing performed ?
  • How many joint replacement or joint resurfacing operations have you had ?
  • Do you currently use any mobility aids because of your joint problem ?
  • Are you waiting for further joint replacement surgery ?
  • Has your joint replacement ever dislocated ?
  • Have you needed any treatment for back or neck problems ?
  • How many unplanned hospital admissions have you had for this condition in the last year ?
  • How many medicines do you take for this condition ?

Hip Replacement Surgery

This is done in cases where hip injuries are causing chronic pain and limited mobility. These include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Osteoperosis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Septic arthritis
  • Femur fracture
  • Pagets disease
  • Bone tumours

The procedure involves replacing the ball at the top of the Femur (thigh bone) that fits into the socket of the pelvis. Most people that have Hip Replacement surgery go on to have vastly improved mobility and are free from pain. There are, however, some complications that can arise. These include:

  • Dislocated
  • Osteolysis
  • Metal sensitivity
  • Nerve palsy
  • Chronic pain
  • Metal toxicity
  • Leg length inequality

Beware that your Hip Replacement may set off metal detectors at some Airports so it is advisable to contact your airline before you plan a trip.
