HIP IMPLANT – WHY DO I NEED A REVISION?

Patients can suffer serious complications like metallosis, dislocation and infection. These complications may necessitate a revision surgery. The revision joint replacement surgery is more complicated than the original procedure. Patients are often referred to specialist in revision operations.
You may need a revision if you’ve experience:
- Loosening of the implant
- A fracture
- Implant recall
