Joint replacement surgery

Joint replacements can bring a new lease of life to patients of all ages who are suffering pain and lack of mobility.


A joint is where two or more bones come together. Joints may be damaged by arthritis and other diseases, injuries, or other causes. In a healthy joint, cartilage serves as a protective cushion, allowing smooth, low-friction movement.


But if this cartilage becomes damaged by disease or trauma, the tissues around the joint become inflamed, and this causes discomfort and loss of mobility. 


In extreme cases the cartilage wears away, which causes the rough edges of bone to rub against each other, and this results in more pain.


Depending on the extent of the joint damage, your surgeon may not remove the whole joint, but will only replace or fix the damaged parts.
