In a joint replacement, the abnormal bone and lining structures of the joint are removed surgically, and new parts are inserted in their places. These new parts may be made of special metal or plastic or specific kinds of carbon-coated implants. The new parts allow the joints to move again with little or no pain. [Hip & Knee join are most of the required Joints for Replacement]
Artificial joints in the Knee and HIP may help:
Reduce joint pain
Restore or maintain joint motion
Improve the look and alignment of the joint(s)
Improve overall Knee and HIP function.
