Poor outcome following hip operation – £16,500

Having suffered from arthritis for a number of years, Mr Millet was advised that he would need a hip replacement. His consultant informed him of an operation involving a new technique called a Birmingham arthroplasty which involved resurfacing rather than removing and replacing the head of the femur. Mr Millet agreed to undergo this procedure but afterwards he was considerably worse off and suffered from pain and limited movement.

We obtained a report from an independent orthopaedic surgeon who confirmed that he operation had not been properly performed and we therefore pursued a claim for Mr Millet for the continuing pain and suffering that he experienced.
