Joint Replacement Surgery

In joint replacement surgery, an arthritic or damaged joint is removed and replaced with an artificial joint called a prosthesis.

You may qualify for joint replacement if you have:

  • Proven severe arthritis
  • Failure of non-operative treatment
  • Disabling pain
  • A health condition that does not otherwise pose an unacceptable surgical risk

Surgery is one of the most important decisions you will make. Joint replacement has allowed millions of persons to return to more active lifestyles. Your surgeon will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you. The information provided on this website is not intended to replace the experience and counsel of your orthopaedic surgeon.
