Joint Replacement Surgery

Joint Replacement is a surgical procedure in which damaged or diseased joints are replaced with a metal, plastic or ceramic device which is called prosthesis.

Joint Replacement decreases pain and helps the patient move and feels better. Hip and knee replacements are most common, but other joint parts are also replaced including, shoulder, elbow, ankle and wrist.

Severe joint pain and disability need joint replacement surgery. In common cases joint pain is caused by damage to the cartilage that lines the ends of the bones either from arthritis, fracture or another condition.

Surgical Procedure

Joint Replacement Surgery takes a few hours. The surgeons remove damaged cartilage and bone from your joint and replace with prosthetic elements which are made of metal, plastic or ceramic. The prosthesis copies shape and movement of a natural joint. In arthritic hip, the surgeons replace damaged ball (the upper end of the femur) with a metal ball attached to a metal stem which is fitted into the femur and plastic socket is implanted damage into the pelvis, replacing the damaged socket.
