Does Your Joint Replacement Have a Warranty?

Does Your Joint Replacement Have a Warranty?

by Stephanie Meadows
One of the most common questions patients tend to ask their orthopedic surgeons, is about how long their joint replacement will last. Will it last a certain number of years, or is there a designated warranty that comes with the joint replacement, whether hip, knee, shoulder, etc.? While you might think this type of question would be easy to answer, your orthopedic surgeon will tell you it’s not that simple.
