Knee Joint Operations

Revision Knee Replacement

The majority of knee replacement lasts for over 15 years. Unfortunately there are occasions when knee replacement surgery has to be performed again (revision surgery). Common reasons for redoing knee surgery include loosening, infection, and wear of the moving (articulating) parts. The operation is performed by removing the old knee replacement components and replacing them with newer ones.
