Total joint replacement is a surgical procedure in which parts of an arthritic or damaged joint are removed and replaced with a metal, plastic, or ceramic device called a prosthesis. The prosthesis is designed to replicate the movement of a normal, healthy joint.
Hip and knee replacements are the most usually performed joint replacements, but replacement surgery can be done on other joints, as well, including the ankle, wrist, shoulder, and elbow Several conditions can cause joint pain and dysfunction and lead patients to consider joint replacement surgery. In many cases, joint pain is caused by injury to the cartilage that lines the ends of the bones either from arthritis or a fracture
If nonsurgical treatments like medications, physiotherapy, and activity modifications do not relieve your pain and dysfunction, doctor may recommend joint replacement.
