Longer term complication rates from joint replacement surgery… need for stem cell alternative?



Besides the short term complications of knee replacement surgery, I mentioned in an earlier video, there are longer term complications such as:
• Loosening or fracture of the replacement
• Instability and dislocation of the joint
• Misalignment and breakdown of the replacement
• Nerve damage
• Bone fracture
• Swelling and joint pain
so the actual complication rate of joint replacement swells from 2% to 5%! (GRAPHIC OF 5%)
Plus that doesn’t take into account the restrictions on activity… no running, skiing, or any kind of impact activity on the artificial joint. None. Nada. Is that acceptable?
