Joint Replacement Surgery
Hip joint and knee joint replacements are helping people of all ages live pain- free, active lives.
Joints are formed by the ends of two or more bones connected by tissue called cartilage. Healthy cartilage serves as a protective cushion, allowing smooth and low-friction movement of the joint. If the cartilage becomes damaged by disease or injury, the tissues around the joint become inflamed, causing pain. With time, the cartilage wears away, allowing the rough edges of bone to rub against each other, causing more pain.
When only some of the joint is damaged, a surgeon may be able to repair or replace just the damaged parts. When the entire joint is damaged, a total joint replacement is done. To replace a total hip or knee joint, a surgeon removes the diseased or damaged parts and inserts artificial parts, called prostheses or implants.
Some patients suffering from pain in their joints may put off surgery due to fear of complications. Advanced Joint Replacement Center offers high-quality joint replacement surgery with less pain, faster recovery, shorter downtime, and even outpatient surgery for certain patients – no need to stay bedridden in a hospital for days or weeks!
Outpatient (same-day) surgeries have been found to provide better results and significantly lower complication rates than inpatient (hospital) joint replacement surgeries for qualified patients.
