Learn More about Revision Hip Replacement
This summary of information was taken from a longer, more detailed educational article authored by Dr. Zehr. If you are considering revision hip replacement, we encourage you to download the article. At the Zehr Center for Orthopaedics we believe that being a fully informed, prepared patient is an important contributing factor to a successful surgical outcome.
We have provided several resources for you to learn more about this procedure. You will find a variety of hip replacement topics addressed in our blog. You can review several surgical animations illustrating the inner workings of the hip joint and surgical procedures involving the hip joint. Dr. Zehr discusses revision hip replacement in his educational seminar on joint arthritis, recorded in several segments and made available on the Zehr Center’s YouTube channel and on its Facebook page.
When you elect to have your surgery with the Zehr Center for Orthopaedics, you receive a three-ring binder filled with information, which we refer to as “The Guidebook.” Many patients, in their testimonials, refer to this notebook as being extremely helpful, as it explains step-by-step what to expect before, during, and after your surgery. The Guidebook is but one component of the “Zehr Center of Excellence” approach to integrated care for our patients. It is a foundational part of our approach to patient education which we call our Rapid Recovery Program.
