TOTAL JOINT & TOTAL JOINT REVISION
One of the greatest technological advances for orthopaedic care is in total joint replacement and joint revisions. These orthopaedic surgeries involve replacing a severely diseased joint—most commonly the hip, knee, shoulder, and ankle—with an artificial implant. This procedure becomes necessary when significant cartilage loss occurs in a joint, causing bone-on-bone friction and overbearing pain.
Unfortunately, the components used in replacing your joint don’t last forever or can fail. Common reasons for failure are wear, loosening, infection, fracture, or breakage of the prosthesis. The failed prosthesis most commonly causes pain. Revision surgery is a treatment that replaces any worn or failed components. Pain relief is the primary benefit of joint revision surgery.
