Revision surgery of a total hip replacement

This involves removing or correcting a part or all of the implanted prosthesis. Added to the normal wear of the prosthesis, a person’s more or less active lifestyle can accelerate its deterioration. Trauma can cause the same effect. A repeat surgery is often more complex to undertake and requires more recovery time. It is strongly advised to consult your specialist at the very first symptoms of discomfort in order not to aggravate the situation.
