What Is Revision Hip Surgery?

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.
