Revision Hip and Knee Replacement
When you undergo joint replacement surgery, the hope is that it is the final step in solving your joint pain problems. Unfortunately, every surgery comes with risks, and not all obtain a permanent resolution for the patient. Hip and knee replacement surgeries are very complex, and it is possible for complications to occur or for implants to wear out. If you are experiencing issues after a joint replacement surgery, come see us at Robotic Hip and Knee Replacement LA. Our top orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Farzin Kabaei, offers revision hip and knee replacement surgery at our medical center in Los Angeles.
What is Revision Joint Replacement?
There have been significant advances in revision total hip and knee technology over the last 10 years. Dr. Farzin Kobe utilizes this technology to treat complex issues related to failed hip or knee replacements.
Although most hip and knee joint replacement surgeries are very successful, there continues to be a need for revision joint replacement surgery in cases where the prosthesis has loosened, the bearing surfaces have worn or a patient has sustained trauma with an associated fracture adjacent to the hip or knee joint. These procedures can be quite involved and require experience in dealing with the complex issues that arise intraoperatively.
Replacing artificial joint components can be more difficult than the original surgery. Removing the implants can cause bone or tissue damage. Some patients may need bone or tissue grafts in addition to new implants. Planning and preparation are vital to reduce complications.
Dr. Kabaei has over a decade of experience performing complex joint replacement surgeries. Our surgical center is equipped with the most advanced medical technology, including robotic equipment for joint replacement. You can trust the expertise of Dr. Kabaei if you need revision hip or knee replacement surgery.
