Revisional Surgery

Revisional surgery is a term used to describe operating on a part of the body that has already had surgery and requires further surgery to correct. This can sometimes be due to a complication of surgery or as a result of a bone or tendon not healing correctly. When these types of issues occur it is not uncommon to seek a second opinion about the proper course of treatment.

The most commonly asked question in these cases is “did my doctor do something wrong?”. In many cases the answer is no. Surgical outcomes can be unpredictable and no one has the ability to see the future. However, many problems can be avoided with choosing the right procedure and care after the procedure.

In all cases with surgery, the body must heal itself and it’s not always very good at it. In these cases there are special techniques that can be used with a second operation to help the body heal better than it can do on its own. There are many procedures known to cause a delay in healing and these techniques can help to prevent issues.

When your doctor discusses a problem with the outcome of your procedure it is important to ask questions. Every procedure is different but some general questions are “why did this happen” and “what can be done to fix it”. Many patients are uneasy with the idea of a second operation and this is very understandable. Questions such as “will this happen again” and “what can be done to prevent the same problem” are very valid. In this conversation it is important to have an open communication line with your doctor.

If you feel that your questions are not being answered a second opinion is sometimes a good idea. People seek out a second opinion for many reasons. In some cases it is to find out if their first doctor made a mistake or if the new doctor can offer alternative treatment choices. With any of these cases it is important to discuss your concerns in an openly and have all your questions answered.

If a second operation is needed, it is important to discuss your goals and expectations with your surgeon. Many times when patients and surgeons have different goals it can be hard to know what a good result is. A surgeon may be satisfied with a result that a patient is not and vice versa. Having the same goals and expectations is the key to a successful outcome.

All our providers are available to offer second opinions. They approach each case as unique and they apply practical skills and specialized training to achieve the desired outcome. If you have a need for a second operation or wish to seek a second opinion prior to surgical correction, any one of our providers would be happy to discuss these with you.
