What You Need to Know About Revision Hip Replacements

Hip revision is a complex surgery that requires careful consideration and planning.

Keep in mind that the surgical outcome for hip revision might not be as good as the initial hip replacement because of several factor:

  • Quality of the underlying bone that has already undergone surgery
  • Ability of the surgeon to adequately secure the replacement hip into existing bone
  • Necessity for more extensive surgery than the initial hip replacement

Careful planning by your orthopedic surgeon is needed to ensure he or she will be able to construct a hip that will allow you to recover adequately. You and your surgeon will decide when the time is right for hip revision surgery
