I think my knee replacement is failing. What should I do?

Doctor Looking an X-ray of a Knee ReplacementYou went through knee replacement surgery with the hope and expectation that your pain would decrease and your quality of life would improve. However, now you are experiencing concerning symptoms such as:

  • Pain
  • Fever or signs of infection
  • Lack of stability or mobility
  • Swelling

These could be signs that your knee replacement is failing.

See Your Doctor for a Diagnosis and Treatment Plan

If you notice any sign that your knee is giving way or that you have developed an infection, then it is important to see your doctor as soon as possible. Your doctor will determine whether or not your knee replacement is failing. If your doctor finds that your knee replacement is failing, then revision surgery may be recommended.

Revision surgery can be more complicated and have a more significant impact on your life than your original knee replacement surgery.
