Hip Replacement Revision

Hip replacement revisions are performed in the Prairie Mountain Health, Southern Health-Santé Sud and Winnipeg regional health authorities. Your surgeon might work at more than one location. Ask your surgeon where you are having your hip replacement revision.

Hip revision surgery, which is also known as revision total hip arthroplasty, is a procedure in which the surgeon removes a previously implanted artificial hip joint, or prosthesis, and replaces it with a new prosthesis. Hip revision surgery may also involve the use of bone grafts.

Median wait time: The point at which half the patients have had their treatment, and the other half are still waiting. For example, if a median wait time is 4 weeks, this means that half of the patients waited less than 4 weeks, and half waited more than 4 weeks. The median is another way of reflecting what a "typical" patient might have experienced in that time period. Unlike the average, the median is not generally influenced by one or two very unusual cases (long or short), and is therefore more stable over time.

1 C/V = Confidential Value - This means that the RHA reported less than 5 cases. To protect patient privacy, wait times associated with small volumes are not reported.
2 N/S = No service provided - This means that although available, none of these services were performed during this period in the RHA.
