Total Knee Arthroplasty
When you have persistent knee pain that isn’t getting better, even with rest, ice, over-the-counter pain medications and other treatment, total knee arthroplasty could be a good option for you. Total knee arthroplasty is another name for total knee replacement. This involves replacing damaged parts of your knee joint with metal components to ease pain and make it easy for you to perform your daily activities.
Total Hip Arthroplasty
When you have hip pain that doesn’t go away with nonsurgical treatments, such as pain medications and rest, your doctor might recommend having a total hip arthroplasty done. During this procedure, also known as a total hip replacement, surgeons remove cartilage and other parts of the hip joint that have worn away or been damaged and replace them with artificial parts. This helps your hip become fully functional again and relieves pain and stiffness, which allows you to go about your normal activities.
