Revision Hip Replacement
This means that part or all of your previous hip replacement needs to be revised.
This operation varies from a minor adjustment to a considerable operation replacing significant amount of bone. Total Hip Replacement (THR) procedure replaces all or part of the hip joint with an artificial device (prosthesis) with a plastic liner in between to restore joint movement.
A hip may need to be revised due to pain, plastic (polyethylene) wear, dislocation (instability), loosening of either the femoral or acetabular component, infection or osteolysis (bone loss).
