What is a Painful Total Hip Replacement?
A hip replacement is a surgical procedure where an injured or damaged hip joint is replaced with an artificial hip joint known as a prosthesis. Reoperation may be necessary to resolve pain in a hip replacement due to a damaged, misaligned or worn-out part of the artificial hip joint, or repair of a muscle. A partial or complete exchange of the prostheses that were implanted during the original surgery may be performed during this corrective surgery.
