Dr Davidovich and his team were confident, accessible, and thorough. Dr Davidovich allayed all my fears & anxieties with his professionalism and reassuring approach. At the end, the results speak for themselves. Thank G-d I have no pain and am back to my old self, able to accomplish more than prior to my hip surgery. His anterior procedure is way superior to the posterior one. I know because the last hip on my right side was posterior. I would highly recommend Dr. Roy Davidovich. ~ Healthgrades
With revision hip replacement surgery all or part of previously implanted hip-joint is replaced with a new artificial hip-joint. This surgery varies from very minor adjustments to massive orthopedic hip surgery replacing significant amounts of bone and hence is difficult to describe in full due to the uniqueness of each patient.
- When a replacement joint wears out, loosens or develops a problem, it can be replaced in a revision hip replacement surgery
- Each hip replacement revision surgery is customized to the unique needs of the patient
Revision hip replacement surgery is recommended in patients with:
- Increasing pain in the affected hip is one of the first indications that revision surgery is necessary
- Pain from hardware e.g. cables or wires causing irritation
- Dislocation (instability) which means the hip is popping out-of-place
- Plastic (polyethylene) wear – this is one of the easier revisions where only the
plastic insert is changed
- Loosening of the hip-joint prostheses
- Infection of the hip replacement – infection usually presents as pain but may present as an acute fever or a general unwell feeling
- Osteolysis (bone loss) – this can occur due to particles being released into the
hip-joint which result in bone being destroyed
