Difference between Revision Hip and Knee
Replacement
  • Revision hip replacement and revision knee
    replacement are the two most successful surgeries
    that enable the patients to live a happy and
    pain-free life. Both surgery procedures are
    beneficial for humankind, but there is a
    difference in both the replacement procedures.

Difference between Revision Hip and Knee
Replacement
  • Revision hip replacement
  • Hip replacement is a mechanical device that is
    set before and at the time of the surgery. It is
    also known as a ball and socket. It restores the
    movement in the hip for the lifespan of the ball
    and socket prosthesis.
  • Over time, this device fails due to mechanical
    and biological factors. In such cases, the
    operation is done again to fix the issue with the
    mechanical device. This reoperation is
    called revision hip replacement.

Difference between Revision Hip and Knee
Replacement
  • Reasons for the revision hip replacement
  • Several factors lead to the revision of hip
    replacement. These are
  • Repetitive hip dislocation
  • In the ball and socket device, the ball must
    remain inside the socket so that the mechanical
    device can work well and maintain the hip
    movement. However, certain conditions force the
    ball to come out of the socket. It is known as
    hip dislocation. The hip dislocation damages the
    major muscles and ligaments. It leads to further
    complications, and the doctor then advises the
    revision hip replacement.

Difference between Revision Hip and Knee
Replacement
  • 2. Mechanical failure of ball and socket
  • The ball and socket parts move against each
    other. This continuous movement leads to the wear
    and tear of the mechanical device. Since younger
    people move faster, it leads to the breaking off
    of the parts of the mechanical device.
  • The body considers these broken parts as foreign
    particles and creates an immune response against
    them in the hip area. It leads to the damage of
    bones in the hip. In severe conditions, it causes
    a bone fracture.
  • The best hip replacement surgeon in
    Mumbai addresses this issue and implants new
    parts.

Difference between Revision Hip and Knee
Replacement
  • 3. Infection in hip replacement
  • It can occur at any time. Sometimes an infection
    in other body parts leads the bacteria to the hip
    area, which causes the infection. After
    diagnosing the infection, revision hip
    replacement is performed to treat it.
  • Revision knee replacement
  • After total knee replacement, patients may need
    the reoperation to fix the parts again or clean
    the bone surfaces. The prosthesis can be replaced
    partially or completely by the knee replacement
    surgeon in Mumbai. It is called revision knee
    replacement.

Difference between Revision Hip and Knee
Replacement
  • Reasons for the revision knee replacement
  • The reasons for the need for a revision knee
    replacement are
  • Infection  Although the risk of infection is
    little in total knee replacement, its not nil.
    In such cases, knee revision is required.
  • Instability  When soft tissues around the knee
    fail to provide stability, knee revision is used
    to treat it.
  • Wear and tear  The mechanical wearing and
    tearing in the knee area get treated with knee
    revision.

Difference between Revision Hip and Knee
Replacement
  • It is necessary to follow the precautions to
    prevent both procedures. The patient should get
    himself checked by a hip replacement surgeon in
    Mumbai regularly to diagnose any arising problem.
  • Dr. Chirag Patel is one of the best knee
    replacement surgeons in Mumbai. If you are
    planning for a knee or hip replacement, visit him
    to avail of his best treatment.
