  • Complications - Orthopedic surgery scene Hip repair gone horribly wrong
  • By Matthew Abbott
  • You're darn tootin right it is. It needs surgery my man
  • I think my hip is broken!!
  • This guy is crazy
  • We can fix this with a few pins
  • Are you sure, it looks like it needs to be replaced...
  • I have no thoughts i'm just a background character
  • The story of a washed up, once great, orthopedic surgeon
  • It looks like the surgery didn't work, we'll need to do another
  • Shut up nurse, we'll give him so pain meds, its just a post OP complication
  • Patient arrives at hospital to get hip surgery from a well known surgeon
  • I think the other surgeon I saw ruined my hip
  • I will run some tests and see what the damage is
  • In order to save time, the surgeon cut corners and chose to add pins to hip instead of performing a full hip replacement
  • Give it to me straight Doc, will I ever walk again?
  • The only course of action is amputation, the leg is too far gone...
  • Nope. The other surgery was botched and now the hip bone has dissolved and become greatly infected
  • The patient came back in immense pain. The surgery failed and the hip re-broke and began to dissolve. The surgeon didn't want to deal with it and sent the patient on their way.
  • The patient was skeptical and went to another surgeon for a second opinion, but it was too late.
  • The hip had become infected and the damage was too much, the hip was far beyond repair. the entire leg was amputated, and further painful surgeries needed to be performed down the road.
