Revision Knee Replacement
A patient might have to undergo a revision knee replacement if their prosthetic knee implant from the initial knee replacement surgery has failed after an injury or trauma. Sometimes infection can also necessitate a revision knee replacement surgery.
Compared to the total knee replacement, revision knee replacement’s procedure is a lot more complicated. It involves the removal of original implant which typically grows into the bone in the knee. Also, after removing the original prosthesis, there is less bone remnant around the knee that makes it difficult to fix the new implant.
The procedure does require preoperative planning with the need of specialized tools and more precision from the surgeon. At Vidyasagar Hospital, we combine state-of-the-art medical technologies with contemporary treatment techniques to deliver exceptional outcomes.
