Joint replacement surgery is removing a damaged joint and putting in a new one. A joint is where two or more bones come together, like the knee, hip, and shoulder. Hip and knee replacements are the most commonly performed joint replacements, but replacement surgery can be performed on other joints, as well, including the ankle, wrist, shoulder, and elbow. Sometimes, our surgeons will not remove the whole joint, but only replace or fix the damaged parts. Replacing a joint can relieve pain and help you move and feel better. Our surgeons who specialize in joints will work with you before, during, and after surgery to make sure you heal quickly and recover successfully.
