Revision Knee Diagnosis
The knee experts at Greater Phoenix Orthopedics will put you through a thorough physical evaluation, along with diagnostic tests such as an MRI or X-ray to determine the need for revision knee replacement. These are performed to see if there is any loosening or a change in the position of the knee components and help us understand why the knee has failed.
Your body will let you know if you’re experiencing an implant that was poorly inserted or the wrong size. Common symptoms of a failed knee replacement include pain, swelling, stiffness and a loss of range of motion in the area, even well after the procedure. You can expect a quicker recovery versus traditional methods with most patients reporting 2-3 weeks post-op before they can get back to their normal routine.
