What is Joint Replacement Surgery ?
Joint replacement surgery or an Arthroplasty is the surgical procedure performed to remove the infected, inflamed necrotic, damaged, or fractured joint and replace it with a prosthetic implant to restore the joint’s normal anatomical functions. These replacement prostheses can be of metal, ceramic, plastic, or silicon materials. The surgery can either be a total joint replacement or a partial joint replacement. The patient’s medical and surgical profile needs to be proper before they are advised of this surgery. People suffering from joint pains, arthritis, fractures, stiffness and mobility issues, avascular necrosis, and more are advised this procedure as a treatment option when medication fails.
