Loose hip replacement surgery, commonly referred to as “hip replacement surgery”, is offered by the board certified best in class orthopedic surgeon on Orthopedic Hip Surgeons of NYC – located on the Upper East Side in Manhattan, New York. As people live longer and more people receive artificial joints and undergo hip replacement surgery, some of those joints inevitably wear out and fail. When an artificial hip joint fails, a second hip replacement surgery “revision hip replacement surgery” is required to replace the failing joint or the artificial device (hip implant) which is failing. This procedure may also be called a “revision arthroplasty” or “failed hip replacement revision“. All loose loose hip replacement surgeries are customized the patient’s unique condition.
- Loose hip replacement surgery is typically due to injury, arthritis, or everyday wear and tear or due to an initial failed hip replacement

Symptoms of a Loose Hip Implant
When a hip implant loosens, it begins to move a little bit. Symptoms of a loosened hip replacement include:
- Increasing and lasting pain that develops slowly over years (the pain usually is in the entire hip and or in the thigh when the femoral component comes loose)
- Stiffness in the joint
- Changes on X-rays
- Problem putting weight on the joint
- Reduced range of motion
Reasons For Having Revision Hip Surgery
Man-made artificial hip replacement joints do not last forever and in many situations show signs of loosening after a period of 10-15 years. When an artificial joint is no longer securely attached to the bone, it is typically due to the bone absorption next to the artificial device; thus, new abnormal motion occurs, resulting in pain. Hip revision surgery is an attempt to correct the problem in order to get the hip back to a condition where it can function normally.
- In summary, hip revision surgery involves replacing an artificial hip joint that has become loose, infected or worn out.
