Total hip replacement is successful in over 95% of well-selected patients. On average, replacements last 15-20 years. Some patients enjoy full use of the prosthesis after 25 years or longer. Occasionally, an implanted prosthesis does not function as well as it was intended to. In this case revision surgery may be performed to adjust or replace the mechanism.
Revision total hip replacement is often used for:
- Leg Length Inequality
- Periprosthetic Fracture
- Recurrent Dislocation
