Total Hip Replacement is one of the most successful procedure in all of medicine allowing patients to live more productive and active lives free of debilitating hip pain.
With more joint replacements performed every year and procedures extending to treat younger more active patients, there is an increase in need of Revision Total Hip Replacement.
Over a period of time the Hip Replacement may fail due to a variety of reasons. When your Hip Replacement fails, then what you need is a second surgery i.e. Revision Total Hip Replacement where your doctor will remove some or entire part of original implant and replace them with new implant.
Revision Hip Replacement is a longer and more complex procedure that requires extensive planning and special implants and technology to achieve the desired goals.
We at Neem tree healthcare have vastly experienced surgeons trained extensively in revision surgery and routinely dealing in Revision Hip Replacement cases with satisfactory patient outcomes.
Exact cause of implant loosening is not known but is mostly due to repetitive high impact activities, excessive body weight and wear of plastic spacer.
