Joint Replacement Surgery

  • Joint replacement surgery, also known as arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure that involves removing a damaged or diseased joint and replacing it with an artificial joint, called a prosthesis. This procedure is typically performed on large weight-bearing joints, such as the hip or knee, but it can also be performed on smaller joints, such as the shoulder, elbow, or ankle.

  • The most common reason for joint replacement surgery is to relieve pain and improve joint function in patients with severe joint damage or degenerative conditions, such as osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. The procedure may also be recommended for patients with joint injuries, congenital joint defects, or other conditions that affect joint mobility and function.

  • During joint replacement surgery, the surgeon removes the damaged joint and replaces it with a prosthesis made of metal, plastic, or ceramic materials. The prosthetic joint is designed to mimic the natural structure and function of the original joint, allowing patients to move more freely and without pain.

  • Recovery from joint replacement surgery typically involves a period of rehabilitation and physical therapy to help patients regain strength, mobility, and range of motion in the affected joint. Most patients are able to return to their normal activities within a few weeks to a few months after the procedure, depending on the extent of the surgery and the individual's overall health and fitness level.
