Revision Hip Surgery

Hip replacement surgery can be life changing for those dealing with pain on a daily basis. Unfortunately, even a replacement hip can wear out – particularly if you are relatively young and lead a fairly active life.

You will know if your hip has worn out, as the implant becomes loose and painful. If this happens, we will need to remove them and put in new ones. This procedure is called revision hip replacement surgery.

When should you contact us?

If your hip replacement simply doesn’t feel right or it is painful, please get in touch with us straight away. We will assess your hip and arrange investigations to find out if there is anything wrong. If you do need to have revision hip replacement surgery, it is usually better to have it done sooner rather than later, as this reduces the risk of further complications.

Complications with revision hip surgery

In comparison to having a hip replacement for the first time, there is a higher risk of complications following revision hip surgery. It can also take longer for patients to recover from the operation. This is because your surgeon needs to conserve the remaining bone, while removing the affected components and ensuring that any new components are fixed securely into place.
