Complex Revision Hip Replacement
Surgery for the failing hip replacement encompasses a spectrum of potential problems to be addressed. I have an extensive experience of managing the problems from severe bone loss at both the acetabulum (socket) and femur (ball). I will use these surgical techniques along with modern materials and components to address the problems encountered in a complex revision hip replacement.
I have experience of replacing the femoral bone (the thigh bone) at the proximal (where it meets your pelvis) and distal (where it meets the knee) ends along with total femoral replacement (the whole bone, from hip to knee) when needed for significant bone loss or infection. I also have experience of reconstructing the acetabulum (socket) using bone graft or metal augments where significant bone loss has occurred.
I will fully assess your case and discuss all options with you prior to undertaking any surgery.
