Revision Hip Arthroplasty

Revision Hip Arthroplasty or Revision Hip Replacement involves removing previously placed components or prosthesis, and replanting a new device. This surgery is usually more complicated than a first time hip replacement, and can involve the removal of the acetabular component (cup), plastic liner, the femoral component (stem), or all three. Reasons for revision hip surgery include pain, instability, loosening over time, infection or fracture.
