What is Joint Replacement Surgery?
Joint replacement is a surgical procedure used to remove bone from an arthritic or damaged joint and then replacing it with an artificial joint (called a prosthesis). Typically, a joint replacement is considered only after other treatment options have failed to provide adequate relief from pain and/or disability.
You may be a good candidate for joint replacement if you have a combination of the following:
Limited mobility of the joint
Degenerative joint disease (e.g., arthritis)
Unsuccessful medications and other non-surgical interventions
