Joint Replacement

Joint replacement surgery allows a damaged joint to be removed and replaced with a prosthesis,
typically made of plastic or metal. Joint replacement most often occurs in the hip, knee and
shoulder. Joint damage is usually caused by arthritis, injury, or the common wear and tear that
occurs over the years. Damaged joints can cause pain, stiffness, and swelling. Joint replacement
is becoming more common and has been shown to greatly improve a patient’s quality of life.
