Joint Replacement

Joint Replacement

Joint replacement is a surgical procedure to remove and replace an arthritic or damaged joint with an artificial joint. This procedure is commonly performed on hips and knees, and some smaller joints like the ones in wrists and hands can also be replaced. Joint replacement surgery is usually considered only after other treatment options have failed to provide adequate relief from pain and/or disability.

New advances in minimally invasive joint procedures, such as partial knee and partial hip replacements, promise faster recov¬eries, so you can get back to living life at your own pace.
