Revision Knee Surgery
What is Knee Revision Surgery?
Revision knee surgery is also known as revision total knee arthroplasty. It's a procedure that orthopedic surgeons use to replace previously implanted artificial knee joints or prosthetics that have become loose, cause pain, or are at risk of causing harm to the knee joint.
Following an evaluation and consultation, the knee surgeon will replace the current prosthesis with a new prosthesis in a similar manner to your original surgery or customized to your needs. Additionally, the surgeon might also use a bone graft, from another area in the body or from a donor, instead of an artificial prosthesis.
Revision knee surgery, like total knee replacement surgery, is a procedure that will require ample time for recovery as well as appropriate physical therapy in order to achieve the best results. After surgery, most knee revision patients have less discomfort in the knees once fully healed.

“On August 3, 2016 Dr. Reichard did a right knee revision, my first replacement lasted 13 years. The surgery went well as did my recovery. I really enjoyed my pre-op visit and think he did a great job. I am back bowling and riding my ATV. Was able to remove all of the snow from the recent storms without any problems. Life is good again.” — Gilbert C.
