Hip Revision Surgery in Dubai:
An Overview

Hip revision surgery aims to repair or replace an artificial hip joint.

This procedure may be necessary following hip replacement surgery to correct any damage to the artificial hip that happened due to:


Alignment problems


Normal wear and tear

Loosening of the implant from the bone

A fracture around the prosthetic (artificial hip joint)

Hip revision surgery aims to address issues with the original implant and improve the function and stability of the hip joint. 

Need for
Hip Revision Surgery

Human-made implants, or prosthesis, that your orthopedic surgeon used during hip replacement surgery only last for a while. Typically, these implants last for 10 to 20 years, varying on the daily use of your joint.

Over time, the regular, day-to-day movements wear down your artificial joint. This wear and tear can result in loosening, dislocation, or improper fit, causing the joint to function inadequately. 

It can cause pain, weaken, and damage your muscles, tendons, ligaments, and hip bone. To prevent this damage, Dr Hesham, an orthopedic surgeon, may recommend hip revision surgery in Dubai.

Procedure Details:
Hip Revision Surgery in Dubai


The preparation for total hip revision surgery in Dubai starts with a consultation with a hip revision surgeon like Dr. Hesham weeks before the surgery. He may perform several tests like:


X-rays to look for loosening or a change in the position of the components.

Nuclear medicine bone scan

Nuclear medicine bone scan to determine if the prosthesis has loosened from the bone.

MRI and CT scan

MRI and CT scan to assess the cause of hip failure and evaluate bone condition.

Blood tests

Blood tests to check for infections or reactions to the metal components in your hip.


Total hip revision surgery is performed under anesthesia to make you comfortable during the procedure. During hip revision surgery, Dr. Hesham will make an incision to expose and access the hip joint. 

Once the joint is exposed, he carefully removes the existing components of the artificial hip joints, addressing any damaged or compromised bone or soft tissue. Specialized instruments are then used to prepare the bone for the new implant. 

He then selects and inserts the new hip components depending on the extent of the revision needed. The components are secured in place using surgical cement or specialized techniques to achieve stability and proper alignment.

Once the new implant is positioned and stable, the incision is then closed, and the surgical site is bandaged.

Hip Revision Recovery and
Post-Operative Instructions

After hip revision surgery, you’ll remain in the hospital for a few days to monitor your healing progress. 

There’s an adjusting period after surgery because daily activities like entering a car and climbing stairs will be challenging. You may experience a limp when walking and some discomfort, which typically goes away after six months when you’re completely healed.

After approximately a month, Dr. Hesham will take X-rays of your leg to monitor healing.

Post-surgery, Dr. Hesham will give you care instructions that could include:

Long-Term Outcomes

The vast majority of patients undergoing revision surgery experience favorable long-term outcomes, such as pain relief, improved stability, and enhanced function.

While complete pain relief and restoration of function may not always be attainable, most patients experience significant improvements. However, some patients may still experience some pain or dysfunction after hip revision surgery.
