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.

Am I Too Old for Surgery?

Not if you are in reasonably good health and have the desire to continue living a productive, active life.

What Activities May be Pursued, Post-Surgery?

Activity level depends on the type of surgery, your health and your recovery. Typically, patients may return to low-impact activities within two weeks after surgery.

Our expert panel, lead by Dr. McPherron of Southeast Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, explain the newest treatment options for hip and knee replacements.
