Then while he is sleeping he passes away? Before the surgery. Do think anything suspicious of this.
He was 87 years old.
This happened to a coworker :(

A person who had a long bone fracture is at risk of having a fat emboli. If this emboli lodges into the blood vessels of the heart or brain in can cause death. Hip replacement also has its own risk like metallosis or loosening of the implant.

I am sorry to hear about your father. However, you cannot solely blame the hip replacement surgery that ended your father's life. When we are going old, generally our immune system, our body weakens which is very prone to complications. Prior to the surgery, does your have have any health problems? you should also check that option. See also, DePuy
