In some cases, the cemented plates will fall out of the joint. If this occurs, it will need to be repaired using a cemented post. If this occurs, the patient will need to undergo a surgical procedure to put the cement in securely. This procedure can cost thousands of dollars.

Full recovery will occur after the entire procedure is done. It may take many months for a person to be able to walk. It will also be left up to the individual, as to what degree they can participate in the exercises that are necessary to their near future. Medial therapy will occur in the hospital while the individual is being fitted for a prosthesis. Sometimes, the cemented plates will be taken away during these first efforts.
