If you suffer from hip pain, you know that this condition is not only extremely painful, but detrimental to your quality of life. When hip pain becomes unbearable, hip replacement surgery can help to restore functionality and improve range of motion in your hip joint. Just as your hip joint is susceptible to damage, however, the artificial joint that replaced the damaged bone and cartilage may experience damage from infection or normal wear and tear movement.
At Barrington Orthopedic Specialists, our qualified, highly-experienced surgeons can perform hip revision surgery, intended to improve and repair the condition of your current prosthesis. Our team will work alongside you at every step of your surgery and help you to develop a personalized rehabilitation plan that will allow you to get back to normal activity and pain-free movement.
If you’re ready to get back to your day-to-day routines without debilitating hip pain, schedule your first consultation with the team at Barrington Orthopedic Specialists today. If you’re in an emergency situation, visit the Immediate Care Clinic at our Schaumburg, IL location.
A revision total hip surgery is different in that the original components are removed and new components are implanted. The technical aspects of the surgery are more complex than the original total hip replacement.
However, the preparation for surgery and hospital experience tend to be very similar to the primary total hip replacement.
The choices for implant are also the same, both cemented and cementless components are used depending on the patient’s needs and the quality of bone present at surgery.
