Abstract

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This review outlines the economic impact of revision total hip replacement surgery. RECENT FINDINGS: Surgeons have long recognized the disparity of technical and financial challenges between primary and revision total hip replacements. Recent publications have quantified the economic impact of revision total hip replacement. Methods proven effective in cost reduction in primary total hip replacements have not been routinely applied to revision surgery. The quantity of revision surgery will continue to increase. The economic burden upon the entire healthcare delivery system will also continue to rise. SUMMARY: The current imbalance in the economics of revision total hip replacement is sustainable. Some recent changes in public health policy do provide hope for innovative practice management methodologies that may improve patient care and outcome in revision total hip replacement.
