Knee and Joint Replacement

Knee and joint replacement procedures have become increasingly common solutions for individuals suffering from severe joint pain and limited mobility due to conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or injury. These surgeries involve replacing damaged or deteriorated joint surfaces with artificial implants, aiming to restore function and alleviate pain. The most common type of joint replacement surgery is total knee replacement (TKR), where the damaged parts of the knee joint are removed and replaced with metal and plastic components.

Similarly, hip replacement surgery replaces the damaged hip joint with a prosthetic implant made of metal, plastic, or ceramic materials. Shoulder, elbow, and ankle replacements are also performed, though less frequently.

Advancements in surgical techniques, implant materials, and post-operative care have led to improved outcomes and shorter recovery times for

patients undergoing joint replacement surgeries. Minimally invasive approaches and computer-assisted navigation systems allow for more precise implant placement and smaller incisions, resulting in reduced pain and faster rehabilitation. Physical therapy plays a crucial role in the recovery process, helping patients regain strength, flexibility, and range of motion in the replaced joint. While joint replacement surgery can significantly improve quality of life for many individuals, it is essential to consider potential risks and complications associated with the procedure, such as infection, blood clots, or implant failure. Therefore, thorough consultation with a healthcare provider is necessary to determine the most suitable treatment options and ensure realistic expectations for the outcome of joint replacement surgery.
