Hip replacements may need revision for a multitude of reasons:

Revision may be required for:

  • Loosening of the implant
  • Dislocation
  • Infection
  • Fracture
  • Leg Length Discrepancy
  • Bearing worn out
  • Pain
  • Metal related wear in metal-on-metal bearings including hip resurfacing.

The type of revision, complexity and length of time to recovery will depend on the initial problem that needs addressing.
