Are you experiencing joint pain in your knees, hips, or shoulders? Discomfort and lack of mobility in these areas are often typical symptoms of a joint injury or arthritis. When non-surgical treatments do not relieve your pain, it may be recommended that you undergo joint replacement surgery. Joint replacement involves the complete removal of the damaged joint and tissues. Once removed, these components are replaced by an artificial prosthesis. Joint replacement is most commonly performed to alleviate joint pain caused by damage to the cartilage that covers the ends of the bones. Learn more about joint replacement below.
Knee replacement surgery can replace a damaged or arthritic knee joint with an artificial knee prosthetic. Damage to a knee joint typically occurs due to an injury and can be extremely painful and limiting. During knee replacement surgery, the damaged portions of your knee are removed and a prosthetic containing a tibial component, femoral component, and patellar component is placed. This prosthetic serves the same role as your knee and can restore a full range of motion following your recovery.
Hip replacement surgery can ease hip pain and help you partake in your everyday activities without discomfort stemming from damage around the hip socket. Hip surgery can alleviate pressure caused by bone-to-bone contact by replacing the hip joint with an artificial prosthetic. This artificial hip joint functions just like your natural hip joint.
Shoulder replacement is designed to alleviate pain caused by arthritis, damaged blood vessels, or shoulder fractures. During shoulder surgery, an artificial joint is inserted to replace the ball and socket of your shoulder joint. This prosthetic can restore your range of motion and allow you to resume your daily activities without experiencing severe pain or discomfort.
