Total Joint Replacement
Total joint replacement is a surgical procedure in which the damaged cartilage and bone are removed and replaced with artificial components called implants. Several diseases and conditions can cause damage to the articular cartilage, one of them being arthritis. Thus, total joint replacement surgery is commonly recommended to relieve severe arthritis pain in your shoulder, knee or hip.
Total hip replacement is a surgical procedure in which the damaged cartilage and bone is removed from the hip joint and replaced with artificial components. The hip joint is one of the body's largest weight-bearing joints, located between the thighbone (femur) and the pelvis (acetabulum).
