Total Joint Replacement
Total joint replacement is a surgical technique where a surgeon removes damaged and arthritic joints and replace them with a metal or ceramic prosthesis. This device is intended to imitate the movement of a healthy joint. The most common replacement procedures are hip and knee replacements. Other common joint replacement surgeries include wrist, shoulder, elbow, and ankle.
Total joint replacement is recommended when joint pain becomes disabling and nonsurgical treatments do not relieve your pain. Joint pain is normally caused by damage to the cartilage either from arthritis, a fracture or other conditions.
