What is Total Replacement Surgery?

When the pain from rubbing joints rises so much and all other treatments have failed, our experienced orthopedic surgeons can explain and provide the advantages of joint replacement surgery to alleviate pain.

What if I Need Joint Replacement Surgery?
Although each surgery is different, experienced doctors will know how to relieve the pain, so you can continue with your daily routine activities. The duration of the surgery is correlated to the severity of the damage, and the procedure by which the surgery is performed. At the time of surgery, doctors replace the damaged joint with the prosthesis. The prosthesis is made of metal, plastic or a combination of both. Occasionally, doctors cement the joint into place; they won’t in some cases, so it allows the natural bone to grow into it. Cemented joints are used for senior patients. Joints which are not cemented are used more for active patients with stronger bones. These may take a little longer to heal since the patient needs to allow time for their natural bone to grow into it.
Your doctor may suggest you start physical therapy the day after your orthopedic surgery. Strengthening the muscles will help you gain motion again in the joint. In orthopedic surgery, surgeons use orthopedic implants.
Who Needs Total Joint Replacement?
Anyone with arthritis or other complications of joint is a candidate for joint replacement surgery. After the age of forty, women and men tend to be more at risk for these complications.
Every year, more than one million Americans have a knee or hip replaced. The people who suffer most from problems of joint tend to be those who make daily repetitive motions, such as those who work in construction. For others, joint pain comes from diseases, arthritis, injuries or simply wear-and-tear of the joint over time. Replacing the joint alleviates stiffness, pain, and swelling.
Only your doctor can tell you whether you need joint replacement. He or she may put an arthroscope, a small, lighted tube into the joint, to look for damage. Obtaining a small sample of the damaged tissue is also a testing option.
What is Outpatient Total Joint Replacement?
Nowadays, more and more surgical procedures are done on an outpatient basis, i.e., requiring less than 24 hours of hospital recovery. This is slowly becoming more common with total joint replacement surgeries, such as hip and knee replacements. The surgeries are done by using ortho implants and instruments. Once a major procedure requiring a lengthy hospital stay and an inability to drive or work for months after the surgery, it has now become significantly more manageable and so more favored by orthopedic patients everywhere. Total joint replacement is the solution of choice for those suffering from severe arthritis or other certain serious musculoskeletal injuries. The procedure involves a removal of the unhealthy joint cartilage, replacing it with an artificial joint structure intended to look and function as your natural joint once did.
