Although the majority of hip and knee replacements do well with no complications; there are certain cases where the individual may still experience pain, instability, develop an infection, or develop another complication. While some of the complications can be managed conservatively, some might need further surgical intervention which is called a revision procedure.
These procedures require an extensive work up including x-rays, potentially further imaging studies, lab markers, possibly an aspiration from the knee/hip, and an extensive physical exam. Any decision to move forward with a revision procedure is thoroughly discussed with the patient to highlight all risks vs benefits and an informed decision is made.
