In brief: Absolutely
Even in today's environment of declining reimbursement for revision procedures, and larger and larger patients, and more complex problems requiring revision, there should be surgeons in every major medical service area who are ready to perform revision surgery on a hip or knee replacement.
It is a growing problem and there are good solutions to most problems we now encounter. Speak to your pcp.
