Revision Knee Arthroplasty

Revision Knee Arthroplasty or Revision Knee Replacement involves removing previously placed components or prosthesis, and replanting a new device. This surgery is usually more complicated than a first time knee replacement, and can involve the removal of the femoral component (thigh bone cap), plastic liner, the tibial component (shin bone cap), patellar component (knee cap piece) or all four. Reasons for revision hip surgery include pain, instability, loosening over time, infection or fracture.
