Revision Hip & Knee Arthroplasty
What is Revision Hip or Knee Arthroplasty?
Revision Joint Arthroplasty (or Joint Replacement) is sometimes needed to correct an issue or complication from a previous Joint Replacement procedure. One of the most common reasons it is needed is to address Osteoarthritis in another area of the joint. For instance, if you have had a Partial Knee Replacement and several years later Osteoarthritis is affecting the other compartment of the knee, this compartment of the knee may now be replaced as well.
In other instances, the metal or plastic components were not correctly fitted into position and are now causing pain or dysfunction in the joint.
At OSS Health, our Board Certified Joint Replacement Surgeons use the latest advancements in surgical techniques and technology to minimize the need for Revision Joint Replacement Procedures. Our Board Certified Orthopaedic Surgeons have been trusted by countless patients to correct complications that arose from previous Joint Replacement Surgeries at other medical practices and hospitals.
How is Revision Hip or Knee Arthroplasty Performed at OSS Health?
How Revision Joint Replacement is performed is based on your specific condition and what is causing pain or dysfunction in the joint. If needed, implants may be removed and replaced with newer or better fitting implants. If a Partial Knee Replacement needs to be transitioned to a Total Knee Replacement, your OSS Health Joint Replacement Surgeon will discuss with you the best approach for this procedure.
Your OSS Health Joint Replacement Surgeon will thoroughly evaluate your previous surgery to develop a surgical plan that is unique to your condition.
