Hip Revision Surgery

Revision hip replacement is needed when a hip fails. The causes of this are numerous and may include pain, fracture, infection or dislocation. The cause of failure can have a significant impact on the complexity of any surgery required. Failure can occur with NO symptoms.

Because of this, most experts agree that hip replacements should be regularly reviewed to ensure that any impending failure is identified early as this can make surgery less complex. These reviews usually occur every 5 years.

As a specialist hip and knee surgeon I undertake significantly more revisions than other surgeons, on average over 50 a year. This experience allows me to confidently deal with problems that other less experienced surgeons may fell are insoluble.

Infection in hip replacements, although rare, poses a major problem. This is the case even if MRSA is not involved. My team and I have extensive experience in dealing with these types of problems that often require surgical, medical, anaesthetic, nursing and physiotherapy input.

The cause of failure can have a significant impact on the complexity of any surgery required. When pain is the ONLY feature the outcome of revision is unpredictable.

Knees can fail without any symptoms.

Most experts agree that knee replacements should be regularly reviewed to ensure that any impending failure is identified early. This can make any surgery required less complex. These reviews usually occur every 5 years. As a specialist hip and knee surgeon I undertake a large number of revisions annually, significantly more than the national average.
