Squeaking Hips

By October 4, 2013

Follow me on:

A hip replacement is a surgical procedure that replaces a worn out ball-and-socket joint with an artificial joint. Certain types of artificial hip replacements have been found to make a squeaking noise. Often a squeaking hip replacement is just an inconvenience, but sometimes a noisy hip may be a sign of problems with the implant.

Learn about what can cause a squeaking noise from a hip replacement, and what you should do if your hip replacement squeaks.
