* Is Younger Age a Risk Factor for Early Revision after Total Hip Replacement for Arthritis? Prior studies showed that patients who have replacement at a younger age are more at risk of having revision surgery earlier because they are more active than younger patients. Revision surgery can increase the risks and complication rates for patients. But a new study found there is no difference in revision rates based on a patient’s age. (Dr. Craig Della Valle)
