Hip Revision Surgery in Wisconsin
Aurora Health Care: Experts in Hip Revision Surgery
More than 300,000 hip replacement surgeries are performed each year in the United States – but the artificial joints used do not last forever.
Sometimes artificial hip joints are damaged over time due to infection or even years of normal wear and tear. Hip revision surgery helps to correct the problem, so the hip can function normally again – and helps patients maintain active lifestyles.
Choosing hip revision surgery
You may want to discuss hip revision surgery with your Aurora Health Care doctor if you notice:
- Mechanical loosening
- Infection in the joint
- Fracture of the bone around the joint
- Instability of the implant
- Wear of one or more parts of the implant
- Breakage of the implant
- Increased pain
- Loss of mobility
In most cases, warning signs like increased pain and loss of mobility are early indications that hip revision surgery is necessary. Fortunately, many patients have less pain and better mobility after hip revision surgery.
