Joint Replacement Surgery: diseased joint description
Arthritis, injury and age are the principle causes of hip and knee joint destruction. Cartilage gradually thins out, and soon thereafter bone rubs directly on bone so that pain increases and function declines. Cartilage lasts longer when people are healthy and avoid conditions like obesity and injury.
Joint Replacement Surgery: when is surgery needed?
When pain and disability can no longer be controlled by medications, braces and walking aids then joint replacement is indicated. The surgeon, who knows the type of joint disease from which a patient suffers, will recommend the type of replacement. Patient life expectancy and health status influence what the surgeon recommends for surgical and recovery methods.
