KNEE REVISION SURGERY
Advancements in medical technologies and refinement of surgical approaches ensure that patients can benefit from better outcomes with shorter recovery times and lower rates of prosthesis failure. Even in young patients, an artificial knee can last a lifetime. Unfortunately, in a few cases, there are implant failures or the implant bearing can become worn and may need to be replaced. This is unlikely to occur before 15-20 years.
Joint revision surgeries are generally very complex and more challenging procedures than partial knee replacement or total knee replacement surgeries, as each case is unique. This is where our collaborative team approach combining the orthopaedic expertise of all partners at Cape Hip & Knee Practice in Cape Town, South Africa, is of benefit to you.
