Revision hip replacement surgery removes your failed hip surgery implants from a previous total orthopedic hip replacement surgery and replaces them with new ones.
- Hip revision replacement surgery is necessary when part or all of your previous hip replacement needs to be revised.
Please note: We accept full out-of-network insurance benefits for your hip surgery (we will contact your insurance company and submit for you). Most policies reimburse patients for most of the cost of hip revision replacement surgery. Our surgical coordinator will happily assist you with all paperwork, pre-authorizations, and approvals.
I have had my second hip replaced by Dr. Davidovitch & am overjoyed with the result. I walked & climbed stairs without a cane the next day. I was pain free in one week. Thank you Dr. Davidovitch. ~ Google
Revision of a previous hip replacement surgery is for patients who have had hip replacement surgery in the past but are now experiencing instability, stiffness, and pain in the artificial hip-joint.
Dr Davidovich and his staff are absolutely amazing. On their game, very caring and proficient. Dr. Davidovich is extremely skilled at hip replacement. He was recommended to me and I am forever grateful that I had him as my surgeon! Went home the same day, never needed pain medication, back to work in a few weeks. ~ Healthgrades
Common causes for hip revision replacement surgery include:
- Pain – Hip pain is the main reason for hip replacement revision surgery.
- Wear – This can be caused by the plastic (polyethylene) wearing down and is one of the simplest hip revision surgeries because only the plastic insert is changed.
- Dislocation – This can lead to the need for revision of the hip implants.
- Loosening – Hip implants can loosen from their attachment to the bone. Loose hip replacement is a non-invasive arthoscopic surgical procedure.
- Infection – Usually presents as varying degrees of hip pain but may present as an acute fever or a general feeling of unwellness.
- Bone Loss – Osteolysis can occur due to wear particles being released into the hip-joint that result in bone resorption. This may lead to loosening of the hip implant from its bony attachment.
- Hardware Pain – This can be caused by cables or wires causing irritation of the overlying soft tissues.
