What is Joint Replacement Surgery?
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. The surgery is usually done by a doctor called an orthopaedic (pronounced or-tho-PEE-dik) surgeon. Sometimes, the surgeon will not remove the whole joint, but will only replace or fix the damaged parts.
The doctor may suggest a joint replacement to improve how you live. Replacing a joint can relieve pain and help you move and feel better. Hips and knees are replaced most often. Other joints that can be replaced include the shoulders, fingers, ankles, and elbows.
Who needs Joint Replacement Surgery?
A Joint replacement surgery is essential in individuals suffering from a painful disabling arthritis pain which persists in spite of medical treatment. The procedure is, therefore, indicated for painful arthritic joints with or without deformity - in-patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, traumatic arthritis and certain other non-septic arthritis.
What Happens During Joint Replacement Surgery?
For joint replacement surgery, the surgical team will give you medicine so you won’t feel pain (anesthesia). The medicine may block the pain only in one part of the body (regional), or it may put your whole body to sleep (general). The team will then replace the damaged joint with prosthesis.
Each surgery is different. How long it takes depends on how badly the joint is damaged and how the surgery is done. To replace a knee or a hip takes about 2 hours or less, unless there are complicating factors. After surgery, you will be moved to a recovery room for 1 to 2 hours until you are fully awake or the numbness goes away.
