Preparing for My Surgery

Joint revision surgeries may be necessary for younger individuals who demand a lot from their joints or for patients with older implants that may have worn down significantly over time through mechanics or by friction.

If the implant used in your joint replacement loosens, wears, or becomes infected, the affected joint may become swollen and painful. When this occurs, a joint revision procedure may be recommended to remove the old implant and replace it with new components.

It may be time to consult with a joint revision surgeon if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Limping
  • Stiffness
  • Instability

Joint revision surgery is a complex procedure that requires an experienced and skilled surgeon, extensive preparation, and the use of a special implants and tools.
