Revision Knee Replacement

Total knee replacement stands as a cornerstone of modern medicine, offering immense relief to individuals by enabling them to lead fuller, more active lives devoid of persistent knee pain. However, despite its success rate, a knee replacement may encounter challenges over time, resulting in discomfort, swelling, stiffness, or instability in the affected knee, hindering everyday activities.

In instances where a knee replacement falters, a second surgical procedure—a revision total knee replacement—may be recommended by medical professionals. During this intervention, some or all parts of the original prosthesis are removed and replaced with new components, aiming to alleviate pain and restore function.

While both primary total knee replacement and revision surgery share the common objective of pain relief and improved function, the latter represents a more intricate procedure, demanding meticulous planning and specialised implants and tools to ensure optimal outcomes.
