Revision Hip & Knee Surgery

Revision Hip & Knee Surgery

If the hip or knee replacement needs to be redone it is often a more complex surgery. Dr. Russinoff is specialty trained in revision hip and knee replacements.

Hip and knee replacements may need to be redone or “revised” for a number of reasons. These include wearing out of the implants, loosening of the implants, fractures around implants, and infections. Most hip and knee replacements last at least 15-20 years, but some do wear out prematurely.
