Unfortunately two stage revision is often done if there is a serious infection. Long term hospitalisation is not always required as patients are taught to administer IV antibiotics at home via a PICC line.2 stage revision must be a pretty uncommon set of surgeries, because I've never even heard of or about it before my experience -or in nursing school.
