What is Joint Replacement?

Joint replacement or reconstruction, also called arthroplasty, are surgical procedures to rebuild or replace a joint that has naturally worn, been injured or has become weak over time. The joint is replaced or rebuilt with a metal, plastic or ceramic device designed to provide the movement of a healthy, normal joint.

Knee replacements and hip replacements are the most common types of joint replacements however joint replacements can also be performed on the shoulder, elbow and wrist

Are You a Candidate?

Often times, an injury or arthritis can cause the bone and cartilage in a joint to wear down causing joint pain or joint stiffness.  It is time to consider treatment when the day to day activities become too difficult due to this pain or stiffness.  Joint replacement can help you regain lost mobility and get you back into action.

You may benefit from joint replacement or joint reconstruction surgery if:

•    you have difficulty getting around/limited mobility.
•    you have constant joint pain, aching or joint stiffness.
•    you avoid activities that require you to stand or walk for a period of time.
•    have difficulty walking or walking is painful.
•    non-surgical treatments have not been successful.
