Knee Revision Surgery
Knee revision surgery is a procedure that orthopaedic surgeons employ to replace previously implanted artificial knee joints or prosthetics that have become loose, are causing pain, or are at risk of causing harm to the knee joint.
Following an evaluation and consultation, the knee surgeon will replace your current prosthesis with a new one in a similar manner to your original surgery or customized to your needs. Additionally, the surgeon might also use a bone graft, from another area in the body or from a donor, instead of an artificial prosthesis.
Knee revision surgery, like knee replacement surgery, is a procedure that will require ample time for recovery as well as appropriate physical therapy in order to achieve the best results. Most knee revision patients enjoy far less discomfort in the knees once fully healed.
