What is Revision Total Knee Replacement?

Your doctor might advise a revision total knee replacement if your initial knee replacement doesn't work. In this treatment, your doctor replaces the original prosthesis' components with new ones after removing some or all of them.

Why is it done?

Revision surgery is different from a primary total knee replacement even though both operations aim to reduce pain and enhance function. It is a longer, more involved process that needs careful preparation, specialized tools, and implants to get a satisfactory outcome.

Relieving pain, enhancing quality of life, and maintaining or enhancing knee function are the aims of knee replacement. All ages, with the exception of children whose bones are still growing, are candidates for the surgery. Prior to considering this operation, you must be in extreme pain and/or be disabled

Who is it for?

You can consider revision total knee replacement if you have:

  • The mating surfaces of the joint have been significantly harmed by knee arthritis or a knee injury.
  • You find it difficult to perform daily tasks like getting in and out of a car or walking up and down stairs due to pain and stiffness.
  • Rest and medication don't make swelling and inflammation go away.
  • Your knee appears abnormally shaped or enlarged
  • You have severe pain, swelling, and stiffness in your knee joint, and your mobility is reduced
  • Your knee pain is so severe that it interferes with your quality of life and sleep
  • Everyday tasks, such as shopping or getting out of the bath, are difficult or impossible
  • You're feeling depressed because of the pain and lack of mobility
  • You cannot work or have a social life


The prosthetic component(s) from the prior total knee replacement (TKR) operation are removed during this orthopedic surgical procedure. The knee joint is then repaired with new prosthetic parts. The femoral condyle component, the tibial plateau component, the polyethylene spacer, and the patella component make up the components. Depending on the need for repair, all or some of these may be replaced.

Rehab is slower and more cautious after revisional TKR surgery since it is a more difficult procedure that takes longer to perform in the operating room.

  • Osteoarthritis: Age-related arthritis of this kind is brought on by the usual degradation of the knee joint. Patients over the age of 50 are most commonly affected, while it can also affect younger persons
    Osteoarthritis is brought on by joint cartilage breakdown, inflammation, and eventual cartilage loss. The bones scrape against one another as the cartilage deteriorates over time. In order to make up for this, the bones frequently thicken, but this causes extra friction and discomfort.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis: also known as inflammatory arthritis, causes the knee joint's lining to thicken and swell. Chronic inflammation erodes cartilage, resulting in stiffness and pain.
  • Post-traumatic arthritis: An extreme knee injury is the cause of this kind of arthritis. The knee cartilage will be impacted if the ligaments or the bones around the knee break.
  • Infection of the joint may cause stiffness, discomfort, or loosening
  • Fracture of the bone around the joint necessitates the repair of the fracture
  • Instability of the implant which may cause the joint to dislocate (uncommon)
  • Breakage of the implant necessitates replacement due to wear and tear on one or more of its components.


  1. Pain Relief
  2. Knee surgery gets rid of knee pain you feel when walking, running, standing, or even when you are sitting or lying down.

  3. Improved mobility
  4. Significant knee pain can restrict you from walking even short distances while moderate knee pain interferes with your ability to take care of your family or do a good job at work.

  5. Better treatment response
  6. Knee surgery may be a good option if chronic knee inflammation and swelling do not get better with rest, medication, or other treatments. Knee surgery reduces your need for medications, physical therapy, and other surgeries.

  7. High success and satisfaction rates
  8. It is a safe and effective procedure with a success rate as high as 97-98 percent.
    To safeguard the replacement joint in the long run, you may still experience some discomfort and need to restrict high-impact activity. However, a knee replacement can significantly reduce your pain and improve your mobility. 15 years following surgery, more than 90% of patients who had a total knee replacement are still in good health.
    It is reasonable to anticipate satisfactory to outstanding outcomes for more than 90% of patients who have revision surgeries. Although total pain relief and the restoration of function are often not attainable, projected benefits typically include pain alleviation with increased stability and function. Following revision total knee surgery, up to 20% of patients could still feel some pain.

    Types of Revision Total Knee Replacement surgery

    The implant is removed, the joint is cleaned up, and the new implant is inserted all at once in a 1-stage operation, which is less frequently performed.

    A temporary cement spacer is inserted in your knee after the implant is removed in a two-stage procedure.

    Deciding factors for Revision Total Knee Replacement Surgery

    An increase in pain or a decline in knee function are typically signs of a failing knee implant. Swelling and persistent discomfort might be signs of infection, loosening, or wear. The pain may be generalized or diffuse across the knee (localized).

    A limp, stiffness, or instability may arise from the loss in knee function. Patients with these symptoms and indications will need revision knee replacement surgery.
