Revision Hip Replacement


Total Hip replacement is a highly successful operation with over 70,000 operations performed in the UK last year (National Joint Registry). However, sometimes they do fail, requiring revision surgery. The most common reasons for revision are Infection, fracture and loosening.

All components are normally removed and replaced, often with longer stems into the femur.

The surgery takes longer than the original hip replacement and the risks are higher because of the complexity.

Payment options

If you have private health insurance it is important to check how much your policy will pay, because some policies do not cover all the associated costs. This is due to the fact that many insurance companies have not increased their cover for surgical fees for over 15 years. This is despite inflation and the rapidly increasing costs of medical indemnity insurance.

For patients paying for their own treatment there is the option of fixed price surgery. This cost includes medical fees, hospital fees, drugs and surgical implants, physiotherapy in hospital, any medical treatment whilst in hospital, and for an extended stay for complications directly related to the procedure for 30 days following surgery.
