Joint Replacement FAQ

What Is Joint Replacement?

It’s a surgical procedure to remove and replace an arthritic or damaged joint with an artificial joint. Most joint replacements are performed because arthritis has caused the joint to stiffen and become too painful for normal daily activities.

When Should I Have This Type of Surgery?

Your doctor will help determine if you are a potential candidate for this surgery or if conservative, non-surgical methods can adequately control your discomfort.
