My 73 yo mother had an unsuccessful hip replacement which has left her with not one day free of pain. I am going to bring her to you for evaluation. What do you do if the bone chips or cracks during the operation?

If the bone cracks during the operation, then I fix it at that time. There are many ways to do so, and they have a wide range of applications depending on the type and location of the crack. I always have a few backup plans on hold if this occurs.



The main issue is to recognize this potential prior to the operation, and understand that no matter how much we prepare for an operation, there will always be circumstances that we could neither prepare for nor control.
