Information about Joint Replacement

What Is Joint Replacement Surgery?

Joint replacement surgery is removing a damaged joint and putting in a new one.

What Can Happen to My Joints?

Bones are alive, and they need blood to be healthy, grow, and repair themselves. Joints can be damaged by arthritis and other diseases, injuries, or other causes. The damage can cause pain, stiffness, and swelling and limit blood flow, causing problems.

What Is a New Joint Like?

A new joint, called a prosthesis, can be made of plastic, metal, or both. It may be cemented into place or not cemented, so that your bone will grow into it. Both methods may be combined to keep the new joint in place.
