Prosthetic Hip Dislocation is among the most frequently seen complications of hip replacement surgery. Hip replacement dislocations occur in about 4% of first-time surgeries and about 15% of revision hip replacements. 

A dislocation occurs when the ball is separated from the socket of the hip replacement. While the ball and socket of the hip replacement are very tightly fit together, they are not actually connected, and if enough force is applied, they can become separated. According to an article in The Bone & Joint Journal, a hip replacement is most likely to dislocate within 1 month after hip replacement surgery.
