Revision hip replacement

Individuals who already have an artificial joint but need to have this either partially or totally replaced can also benefit from our positive experiences with the new tissue-sparing surgical techniques. These revision procedures usually make use of the same minimally invasive methods. If this is not possible for individual reasons, the conventional surgical method is used. In this procedure, the hip joint is accessed via a 15-centimetre-long incision from the side, cutting through the hip muscles. The type of operation and the steps involved will be explained in the consultation. As the exact condition of the joint only becomes fully visible during the procedure, it is possible that we may need to deviate from the normal course of the operation that was discussed with you.
