Danville, Pa.-based Geisinger and Medacta are extending their lifetime guarantee for total hip and knee replacement surgeries to include revision knee surgeries.

The guarantee covers failed knee replacement surgeries even if the initial procedure was performed outside the Geisinger health system or with joints that are not developed by Medacta.

The organizations will cover the cost of care of the revision procedures as long as patients remain in the care of a Geisinger provider and are a Geisinger Health Plan member.

Geisinger began offering lifetime guarantees for eligible total hip replacements through an initiative with Medacta in 2018.
