Joint replacement surgery involves removing the worn out cartilage and bone at the ends of diseased joints and replacing it with state-of-the-art prosthetic devices that function smoothly and without pain. The knees, hips, and shoulders are commonly treated with joint replacement surgery. Patients who require joint replacement typically have arthritis of their joints. Arthritis is a disease that is defined by the wearing out and destruction of the smooth cartilage that lines the joints of the body. Cartilage allows bones to move smoothly and efficiently. When the cartilage becomes damaged and worn-out, the joints do not move as well. Motion becomes limited and painful. There are many treatments for arthritis; however, severe arthritis often requires joint replacement surgery.
