Knee

Total joint replacement is a surgical procedure that helps treat arthritis or severe joint damage by replacing the affected joint with an artificial device called a prosthesis. The prosthesis, made of metal, plastic, or ceramic materials, is carefully designed to mimic the natural movement of a healthy joint.

While hip and knee replacements are the most common types of joint replacements, this procedure can also be performed on other joints like the ankle, wrist, shoulder, and elbow. The goal of joint replacement surgery is to relieve pain, improve mobility, and restore function, allowing you to engage in daily activities with greater ease and comfort.

Several conditions can cause joint pain and disability and lead patients to consider joint replacement surgery. In many cases, joint pain is caused by damage to the cartilage that lines the ends of the bones (articular cartilage) — either from arthritis, a fracture, or another condition.
If nonsurgical treatments like medications, physical therapy, and activity modifications do not relieve your pain and disability, your doctor may recommend total joint replacement.
