Revision Hip Replacement Surgery


78 years old Female patient, had a simple fall while walking and broke her Right Hip Joint. She underwent a Hip Hemi-Replacement Surgery and resumed her daily activities. But to her bad luck she again had a fall and this time she came with broken metal stem along with broken bone. She was advised a Revision Total Hip Replacement Surgery which is a very challenging operation and far more complex than doing a Primary Hip Replacement surgery. The biggest challenge was to remove the broken stem from the bone which was firmly fixed using a bone cement. She underwent Revision Total Hip Replacement Surgery at Ratan Hospital in which the previous broken stem was removed using a Special Osteotomy (Surgically created Fracture) and a special Revision Stem (Solution®, DePuy- USA) and a cup was used to reconstruct her hip joint. And four months following the revision surgery she was happily back to her life with no abnormality in walking and near normal range of movements. This was only possible due to the expertise, experience and infrastructure available at Ratan Hospital for handling such Complex Cases.
