Total Joint Replacement
Many people may require a total or partial joint replacement during their lifetime. Some patients may need to have multiple joints replaced while others do not. Osteoarthritis is the most common reason individuals seek a joint replacement as the synovial membrane wears away causing pain, deformity, instability, and affects a person’s quality of life. Some individuals may have had previous surgeries, injuries or traumas that may require surgical intervention to relieve pain and help restore the loss of range of motion of the joint. Normal aging, wear and tear of the joint, and carrying excess body weight are also common reasons to seek out a joint replacement consultation after conservative treatments have failed.
