Total hip replacement is considered to be one of the most successful surgeries of all time. Usually, people live an active life without hassles and debilitating pain. However, the hip replacement might fail for numerous reasons after being considered successful. In this case, a revision hip surgery is recommended, where either the part, or the entire prosthesis is replaced. The bone surrounding the hip is then rebuilt with the help of augments (pieces of metal which substitute for the bone) or a bone graft. The doctor can also choose to prefer a specialized implant to replace the original one, if the original one becomes the root of the pain.
