£60,000 compensation for Frank* following hip replacement revision surgery mistake

1 minute read

Frank had a right hip replacement but suffered ongoing problems and in 2012 was told that he needed hip revision surgery.

We secured £60,000 compensation for Frank when a mistake was made during a revision operation following hip replacement surgery.

The surgeon who operated on Frank’s hip failed to remove the ‘cement restrictor’ which resulted in his new hip being positioned incorrectly.

This led to Frank being at greater risk of a femur (thigh bone) fracture and with worse mobility than he had before the operation. He suffered weakness in his leg, which gave way on occasions, needed to use a walking aid outside of the house and could only drive short distances.
