Total joint / knee replacement is an extremely successful operation for most patients. Contrary to popular belief, no one is too young to be considered for a knee replacement if the symptoms are bad enough.

An arthritic or damaged joint is removed and replaced with an artificial joint. Joint replacement surgery is a procedure in which the arthritic or dysfunctional joint surface is replaced with an orthopaedic prosthesis. When joint replacement surgery occurs, the artificial surfaces of the joint replacement are shaped in such a way as to allow joint movement similar to that of a healthy natural joint. A person who has injured or damaged their joint may experience extremely severe pain at the site of the joint. In certain instances when the pain is extremely severe, one may avoid using the joint, weakening the muscles around the joint and making it even more difficult to move the joint. In such a severe case, one may consider a Joint Replacement as a possible solution. Examinations and tests will be performed to assess the severity of the joint damage. If less invasive alternatives don't alleviate pain and damage, Total Joint Replacement will be considered.
