Joint Replacement Surgery at OrthoGeorgia
Joint replacement surgery is performed on an arthritic or damaged joint with a new, artificial joint called a prosthesis. The knee and the hip are the most commonly replaced joints, although the shoulder, elbow, wrist, and ankle joints can also be replaced.
Joints contain cartilage, a material that cushions the ends of bones and facilitates movement. Over time, or if the joint has been injured, the cartilage wears away and the bones of the joint start rubbing together causing bone spurs to form.
The joint becomes stiff and painful/arthritic.
Most people have joint replacement surgery when they can no longer control the pain with medication and other treatments and the pain significantly interferes with their daily activities.
It can be a life-changing procedure enabling patients who are battling chronic pain or disability in their joints to live fuller, more active lives.
OrthoGeorgia physicians specialize in all types of joint replacement procedures including:
Common Hip Procedures
