Revision Knee Replacement
Knee Replacement can effectively relieve pain and restore function and provide long term benefit to the patient. However, in a small number of cases, these surgical procedures may fail and require a second surgery called “Revision” surgery.
Some of the common indications for revision surgery include:
- Wear and loosening
- Fractures around the knee implant
A failed knee surgery can cause continuous pain and swelling around the knee area; pain and difficulty in bending or straightening the knee; limping while walking; inability to walk well; inability to climb stairs. Patients who have these complaints may require revision joint surgery.
