In brief: Depends on type

If you are having revision reconstructive surgery such as meniscal repair or acl reconstruction that can often be done at an outpatient surgery center; if you mean revision knee arthroplasty/replacement that should be done at a hospital and will require hospitalization-talk to your surgeon re the postop plan; revisions are complicated cases with less predictable outcomes than primary surgeries.

In brief: Hospital

This is major surgery which requires general anesthesia and is done in a hospital setting.
