Patient is a 55 year old male who came to us complaining of recurrent right hip prosthesis dislocation. Patient stated that this had been occurring since he had a right Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA) a few years ago done at an outside institution. Patient had come in with severe pain and discomfort.

X-rays were reviewed at initial visit, as shown below. Options were discussed with the patient, and it was advised that he have a Right Hip Revision THA with a constrained liner due to recurrent the dislocations. Patient had decided to proceed with the procedure.
