Joint Replacement Revisions

In This Section

Reclaim Your Quality of Life

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
  • Infection
  • Dislocation
  • Patient-related factors, including:
    • Obesity
    • 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

They will work closely with you to assess your condition and explain all of your treatment options. Depending on your personal health situation, joint revision surgery may be the right choice for you.
