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
