Revision Hip Replacement Surgery
A revision hip replacement surgery is required when a hip replacement fails. Much like your natural bones, even the prosthetic hip joint from the primary hip replacement wears out after some years and is prone to accidents. If the implants wear and loosen, or there is an infection at the surgical site or a trauma leads to dislocation of the joint, the orthopaedic surgeon will have to fix it by performing another surgery.
The procedure of a revision hip replacement surgery is more or less similar to the original hip replacement surgery. However, compared to a hip replacement surgery, a revision hip replacement surgery requires more planning and careful execution. The surgeon will remove some or all parts of the original prosthesis and replaces them with the new ones.
