If you suffer from restricted mobility or joint pain you may be a candidate for joint replacement surgery. Osteoarthritis is the most common cause of joint pain. Osteoarthritis is a type of arthritis caused by the breakdown and eventual loss of cartilage of one or more joints. This causes the bones to grind against one another causing pain, inflammation, and restricted movement. Replacing a joint can relieve pain and help you move and feel better.
An orthopedic surgeon can evaluate your condition and discuss the different treatment options available to you. If, after trying other treatment options, the pain you are experiencing is severely restricting your ability to walk or perform simple activities, you may want to consider joint replacement.
