Joint replacement surgery is often recommended for patients who are unable to perform everyday tasks, such as sleeping, without difficulty and pain. State-of-the-art technology has made joint replacement surgery more successful, resulting in increased popularity among both physicians and patients.
Whether it’s your knee, hip or something else, joint replacement surgery can help those struggling with severe pain. Procedures are much less invasive today than in previous generations; incisions are smaller, fewer muscles and tendons are disrupted. You will experience less pain, fewer complications, and a quicker recovery.
Joint replacement is an option for people with pain and stiffness in their joints. The pain is usually chronic, lasts for several months and contributes to poor quality of life.
During joint replacement surgery, an artificial joint, made of metal, ceramic or plastic, will replace the deteriorated joint. The most common joint replacement surgeries are ankle, hip, knee, and shoulder.
