39 Hip Revision Surgery Stories

Hip Revision Surgery is a partial or complete replacement of implants in a patient who has already received a total hip replacement (THR). Implants must usually be replaced after 20 years, but sometimes a complication or implant defect must be addressed earlier. Read the stories of patients who had worn out or faulty hip implants, but chose HSS to do their hip revision to get back in the game.

"At a dance I tripped on a chair, fell on my left side, and my left femur separated from my hip. Being in much pain, the local fire department took me to a nearby hospital in Long Island where I was operated on the next day for a partial hip replacement. Everything was going great but after five weeks I developed a staph infection that put me back in the hospital for 25 days. The prosthesis was removed, I was on intravenous antibiotics for eight weeks and spent the next eight months in a wheelchair."
