Total hip replacement involves replacing the acetabulum with an artificial liner and the proximal femur with an artificial stem. This procedure is most commonly used to reduce pain and improve mobility for patients suffering from hip arthritis.
Total knee replacement recreates the normal function of the knee by shaving off the arthritic ends of the bones and inserting metal and high grade plastic prosthetic parts. If you’re experiencing pain in both knees, ask your physician about bilateral total knee replacement.
The most common type of shoulder replacement involves removing the damaged bone and cartilage and replacing them with a polished metal ball on a stem and a plastic socket. This procedure is very effective for relieving pain and restoring range of motion.
In total ankle arthroplasty procedures, both sides of the ankle are removed and replaced with artificial parts. The tibia is replaced by a prosthesis piece made of medical- grade plastic with a titanium base plate tray. Cobalt chromium alloy is used to replace the talar component of the joint.
