Joint Replacement Revisions
Every year, 400,000 hip and knee replacements are performed in the United States, giving patients improved flexibility and range of motion while dramatically reducing pain. Many joint replacements will last two decades or more. However, a small amount of joint replacements may need to be revised over time. Reasons a total joint replacement might need to be revised include:
- Daily wear and tear may cause the joint replacement to loosen
- Patient-related factors, including:
- A history of hip fractures
- Inflammatory arthritis and avascular necrosis may cause replacements to fail more quickly
- Younger and more active patients may wear out replacements sooner
