Total Knee Replacements are an increasingly common and successful surgery to allow patients to stay strong, keep moving, and live their best lives. However, like any mechanical part, joint implants can wear over the years and decades.
Hip revision surgery is a second operation, oftentimes years later, to remove parts of the original plastic and metal hip components from your original total hip surgery.
