Joint replacement is one of the most successful procedures in all of medicine. In fact, over 90% of patients regain significant function and reduced pain after joint replacement surgery. This allows patients with chronic knee or hip pain to live happier, pain-free lives. However, over time replacement parts can fail or become damaged. When a knee or hip replacement no longer functions correctly, revision surgery may be needed.
Joint revision surgery is a complex procedure that requires extensive planning, specialized implants, unique equipment, and highly skilled surgical experience to achieve a good result. As younger, more active patients outlive the lifespan of their joint implant, the need for a second joint replacement surgery is increasing. If you are experiencing pain, swelling, stiffness, or instability in a replaced joint, SportsMED can help.
