Florida Medical Clinic is dedicated to long-term pain relief through joint replacement procedures. While most joint replacement surgeries are successful, a revision may be necessary if the original implant wears down over time or becomes infected. A decrease in function or stability can be detrimental to your day-to-day life, and prompt treatment is advised if a joint replacement begins to fail.
Revision Joint Replacement
Restoring function and stability.
Typically, prosthetic implants last for several decades. However, normal wear and tear does occur over the years and it may eventually become necessary to replace an older implant with a new one. A revision joint replacement might also become necessary if:
The metal or plastic surface of the implant retains bacteria and allows an antibiotic-resistant infection to develop
The patient injures the bone or soft tissues that support the joint
The implant loosens or separates from the bone
Our Department of Orthopaedics, Sports Medicine & Spine is here to help you achieve the highest quality of life by performing advanced procedures such as revisionary surgeries for failed knee, hip, elbow, wrist, ankle, and shoulder replacements. Utilizing the latest diagnostic capabilities available, we are able to evaluate your unique situation and determine the best approach to treating a worn-down or failed implant. Furthermore, we use the latest advances in joint replacement surgery, such as custom implants and minimally invasive techniques, to help ensure that each revision is designed for long-term success. In-house physical therapy is also provided to help you improve your day-to-day function following an orthopaedic procedure.
