A hip implant may be recalled by the manufacturer for a number of reasons. If your hip implant is recalled, this does not necessarily mean that the implant needs to be removed and replaced. In some cases the recall recommends different or more frequent monitoring. It is important to discuss the reason for the recall with your orthopaedic surgeon to determine the most appropriate course of action.
