If you have had a joint replacment and are carrying around extra weight, there is something you should know. Numerous studies have been done over the years which all support the same premise: being overweight or obese can have a dramatic impact on your success after surgery as well as complications down the road.
A recent study by the Mayo Clinic which looked at over 21,000 hip replacement surgeries found that being obese increased the risks of:
- reoperation for any reason
- revision of implants
- early dislocation (within six months of surgery)
- deep and superficial infections
What is astounding is that the risk of these complications increased in almost a linear fashion with increasing BMI. This means that with each additional pound after a certain optimal BMI, the risk of these complications increases.
