While hip and knee replacements are very successful surgeries for an overwhelming majority of patients, some patients have persistent pain or develop pain after surgery. Select patients may be a candidate for a redo or revision hip or knee replacement.
There are many causes for a painful hip or knee replacement including infection, instability, fractures around the implants, dislocations, component loosening, or failure of the components. Using advanced diagnostic techniques, Dr. Hannon helps each of his patients determine the cause of their pain after their joint replacement and educates them on their treatment options. If necessary, Dr. Hannon is also a trained expert in redoing or revising hip or knee replacements.
In addition to performing these revision hip or knee replacements, Dr. Hannon is also studying the techniques used in these surgeries to better understand the outcomes after revision hip and knee replacement. To learn more about Dr. Hannon’s research please click here.
