Revision Hip Replacement

Revision Hip Replacement at Fitzwilliam Hospital

What is a total hip revision surgery?

A total hip revision surgery, sometimes referred to as hip revision surgery, is usually performed under general anaesthetic. The hip operation will be carried out by an orthopaedic surgeon with a special interest in hips. It typically takes between 60 and 90 minutes.

Your surgeon will make a small cut on the side of your hip and they will carefully remove some or all of the parts of the original prosthesis and, if cement was previously used in your total hip replacement, this will be removed too. They will then insert the specialised revision implants, sometimes using instruments such as screws or cement to keep it in place.

If you’ve significant bone loss in your joint then metal augments or a bone graft will be used to reconstruct the bone. 

If an infection has developed in your prosthesis then your surgeon may perform the revision in two separate surgeries to give time for the infection to clear before a new prosthesis is put in place.
