Total knee replacement is one of the most successful procedures. It enables the patients to live an active life. However, a knee replacement surgery may fail for many reasons. A patient’s knee can become painful, swollen, stiff or unstable, making it difficult to do everyday activities smoothly.
When the knee replacement fails then its recommended to perform a second surgery – Revision total knee replacement. The Total Knee Revision surgery involves removing and replacing a total or partial knee implant (prosthesis) with a new one.
Revision Total Knee Replacement is recommended when:

- Trauma or injury post replacement
