Joint Pain Relief in North Dakota
The Bone & Joint Center’s team of specialized orthopedic surgeons has a wealth of experience in joint revision surgeries — that is, surgery to correct either the complications or failure of a previous surgery.
There are a number of reasons why patients who already had joint replacement surgery may come to us for a revision procedure.
For example, artificial joints themselves can wear out over time. In most cases, knee and hip replacements will last for as long as 20 years for most patients. However, as the number of younger adults who have joint replacement surgery increases, they may require revision surgery at some point to replace the original joint prosthesis.
In some cases, the original joint implant may become loose over time due to friction or subsequent injury. Some medical conditions may weaken the bones around the implant, adding to the instability of the joint prosthesis.
Infection can occur years after an initial joint replacement and can cause pain and stiffness in the joint and may require revision surgery to address the infection as well as its attachment to bone.
