It's not unusual for artificial hip, shoulder, elbow and knee joints to require revision. Even when the initial outcome of the original replacement procedure is good, the need for revision can arise for a variety of reasons.
Correction of a previous joint repair or replacement is typically more complex than an initial joint procedure. Underlying causes, previous damage and structural issues complicate these cases and call for specialized expertise.
At Baylor Scott & White Health, we have the expertise to care for your patients' joint revision needs. That's why referring physicians from around the nation turn to us.
