Complex and Revision Hip Replacement
Total hip replacements are performed to enable patients to live more active lives without debilitating hip pain. Over time, however, a hip replacement can fail for a variety of reasons.
When this occurs, your doctor may recommend that you have a second operation to remove some or all of the parts of the original prosthesis and replace them with new ones. This procedure is called revision total hip replacement.
Our team has unparalleled expertise in complex and revision hip replacements. Our surgeons have performed thousands of hip replacement surgeries -- even the most technically challenging.
Complex primary hip replacements are for patients whose anatomy or disease state complicates surgery. We specialize in complex cases including dysplasia, retained hardware, fused joints, limb deficiencies, and skeletal irregularities from prior surgery or trauma. For revision surgery, first we precisely analyze why the original implant failed with advanced imaging and diagnostic tools. Once the cause is identified such as loosening, dislocation, fracture or infection, our surgical plan tackles those issues specifically. We utilize specialized components like augments, screws, wedges and cones for personalized stability.
