If you need a revision knee surgery Rothman Institute is here to help with the best specialists and technology available!

Total knee replacement surgery is one of the most consistently successful modern medical procedures. Knee replacements can significantly improve a person’s functionality and quality of life, allowing him or her to live a more active life without chronic knee pain. However, a knee replacement will occasionally begin to fail over time as the original prosthesis wears down or loosens. If the original knee replacement fails, you may experience swelling, stiffness, pain, or instability--all of which may make ordinary daily activities difficult to perform. If this happens, it may be necessary to undergo revision knee surgery. If you or someone you love is searching for where to find revision knee surgery, than Rothman Institute is here to help.

Here at Rothman Institute we believe that one of the first steps on the path to recovery is better understanding your condition and the options available to you.

Where to Find Revision Knee Surgery and What to Expect

While the end goal and result are essentially the same--to alleviate pain and restore functionality--the procedure for revision knee surgery is longer and more complex. In order to achieve optimal results more extensive planning will be required.

Types of knee revision surgery may vary. Sometimes only one part of the prosthesis needs to be corrected; other times the entire structure must be removed and replaced. Due to wear and damage that may have occurred, the bone may need to be repaired with augments or bone grafts. Augments are metal pieces used as substitutes for missing bone.

If there is damage to the bone, it is unlikely that the surgeon will be able to use the standard knee implants. Instead, a specialized implant may be used with a longer stem fitted deep in the bone for added support and stability.

All of these factors contribute to making the procedure slightly more complicated and take a little longer to perform. Fortunately, your preparation and hospital experience will likely be very similar to your first knee replacement surgery. If you are trying to determine where to find revision knee surgery that you can trust to have the best results, then you should consider letting Rothman Institute be the ones to guide you through this process.
