Revision knee replacement surgery is a procedure performed when a previously implanted knee joint fails or wears out. Knee replacement surgery is a common Orthopaedic procedure that is performed when the natural knee joint is damaged or deteriorated. While primary knee replacement is a highly successful procedure, some patients may experience complications that require revision surgery.
