Revision Total Hip Replacement
Treat Hip Pain After Total Hip Replacement
Although the majority of hip replacement procedures are performed without any issues, some leave patients with severe hip pain. In these situations, Texas Hip and Knee Surgery often recommends a revision hip replacement for patients in Frisco or Southlake, TX. This is a corrective procedure that is performed in cases where the original replacement did not go as planned, but it may also be required if a patient’s body has changed, such as after aging or weight fluctuations.
Additionally, if a prosthetic hip implant has become faulty, it should be replaced. Although this is a rare occurrence, it does happen, especially in cases of older implants. Faulty implants for hip replacement can lead to pain and reduced mobility, and in some cases, they can even introduce harmful debris into the body. As a result, a faulty implant needs to be replaced as soon as possible.
