Revision Hip Replacement surgery is performed to repair an artificial hip joint that has been damaged over time. It may have been due to an infection or just normal wear and tear of the prosthetic hip. The revision procedure helps to correct the problem so the hip can function normally again.
Revision Hip replacement surgery is much more complex and takes longer to perform than the primary hip replacement procedure. In most cases, the surgery can take several hours. Due to these conditions, revision surgery also has a higher risk of complications.
The vast majority of revision hip replacement surgeries are successful. However, 4 to 5 per cent of people who receive a hip implant may require revision surgery within ten years.
The cost of this procedure in India can range from USD 2,256 to USD 6,105.
