Barry Hipkins, aged 73, of Broadlands Drive, developed septicaemia and aspiratory pneumonia as a result of the wound infection, an inquest was told.
Black Country coroner Robin Balmain recorder a verdict that death was due to known complications from an elective surgical procedure.
“There is nothing about his post operative care that causes me concerns,” he said.
