Joint Replacement Treatment Consultation
Joint replacement surgery is called arthroplasty where the joints of the bones get replaced with artificial joints like metal, ceramic or heavy-duty plastic. The prosthesis(artificial joint) mimics the function of the natural joints in the body. The joint replacement surgery is recommended for patients who see no improvements in non-surgical treatments. In the severe cases of joint pain, joint stiffness, swelling, joint replacement surgery is approached by orthopaedic surgeons.
Hip total arthroplasty, knee joint replacement surgery are the most sought replacement surgeries happening across India while joint replacement can also be done in shoulders, wrist and ankle too.
