Improving the quality of life through joint replacement
There are many conditions which require a joint replacement. The most common being Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis, which result in stiff and painful joints that curtail normal activities severely. Joint replacement is an inevitable solution for worn-out joints, as it ensures painless mobility and allows the patient to get back to near-normal activity levels. The most important advantages of this procedure include…
Pain relief | Improved mobility | Improved quality of life
The three most common joint replacement surgeries performed are hip, knee, and shoulder.
Knee Replacement: Knee replacement surgery is performed to treat advanced or end-stage arthritis. When there is no effect of medicines on arthritis in the joints, or there is severe deformity, this surgery is recommended. Depending on the amount of damage, ordinary activities such as walking and climbing stairs may become difficult. Damage to the knee joint cartilage and underlying bone may also result in deformity. Knee replacement surgery is designed to replace this damaged cartilage as well as any associated loss of bone structure or ligament support.
Hip Replacement: Total hip replacement is recommended if there is an occurrence of unbearable joint pain and prevents the person from being able to perform daily activities. Total hip replacement is a surgical procedure for replacing the hip socket (acetabulum) and the ‘ball’ or head of the thigh bone (femur). The surgeon resurfaces the socket and ball where cartilage and bone have been lost. An artificial ball and socket are then implanted into healthy bone. This procedure is recommended if there is an occurrence of unbearable joint pain and prevents the person from being able to perform daily activities.
Shoulder Replacement: Shoulder joint replacement is usually required for patients who are suffering from severe forms of osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis for those who have sustained severe trauma from a shoulder fracture. Similar to the hip joint, the shoulder is a large ball-and-socket joint. The primary indication for a shoulder replacement is Arthropathy. Pain may be the result of abnormalities and changes in the joint surfaces as a result of arthritis or fractures. The primary goal of shoulder replacement surgery is to alleviate pain and improving motion, strength, function.
