WHAT IS HIP REVISION SURGERY?
When an existing artificial hip joint, called a prosthesis has become worn over time or damaged due to trauma or infection, hip revision surgery can help correct the problem so that the hip can function normally again.
SYMPTOMS THAT YOU MAY NEED HIP REVISION SURGERY
Hip pain caused by an artificial hip implant that is no longer securely attached to the bone, resulting in abnormal motion of the hip, is the main symptom you may need a hip revision.
At least a month before the surgery you will have a consultation and be asked to complete several lab tests. These include:
• Electrocardiogram (ECG)
• Pelvic X-Ray & Chest X-Ray
• Urine test
• Bone scan (If recommended)
• Blood tests
Our imaging department has the latest state-of-the-art scanning equipment. Provided the results of these tests are suitable, you will be cleared for surgery. Prior to the surgery you will also meet with a King’s Anaesthesiologist to explain types of anaesthesia available, and the risks and benefits.
DURING THE SURGERY
The artificial hip joint will be removed and replaced with a new one. In instances where you may have had an infection, more than one surgery may be required spaced over a 6 week period
AFTER THE SURGERY
Typically, you will spend at least 6 days recovering in hospital. During this time you will be given medication and special stockings to prevent blood clots and Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). This treatment will continue following discharge until 6 weeks post surgery.
