There are many potential reasons to consider revision hip or knee replacement surgery. This may include if your current hip or knee replacement is failing, damaged, infected or is not meeting the performance needs you have of it. Sometimes injuries around the joint replacement (eg. a fracture or major ligament injury) can also be an indication to consider revision surgery. In most cases, a thorough assessment and evaluation of your current joint replacement is needed to ensure the best possible outcome after revision surgery. Associate Professor Kurmis will work with you to explore the indications for, and appropriateness of, any potential revision surgery, and discuss your individual management options with you. It is (very) important to be aware that the success of revising a current joint replacement without a clear reason (explanation) for the problems it is causing you is often poor. In most cases, a thorough work up of the joint and its problems is critical to optimising the final result.
