Thank you for your question, as these chronic infections were due to prosthesis so it is wise not to place the prosthesis for next 6-12 months depending upon the damage to the surrounding bone. Once surrounding bone is hard or firm enough based on X rays and MRI scan then we can re implant the bioprosthesis which has very low rate of infection. Thank you.
