Basic Information About a Joint Replacement Surgery

When it comes to talk about a joint replacement, prominent surgeons claim that it is about surgically removing a damaged joint and putting in a new one. A joint in human body is where two or more bones meet, such as hip, knee and shoulder. The surgery is done by a trained orthopedic surgeon. In some cases, the surgeon doesn’t remove the whole joint but replace or fix the damaged parts.

Replacing a joint would relieve the pain and help you move faster and better. It also improves the quality of life. Other joints that can be replaced are the shoulders, ankles, fingers and elbows. Joint can be damaged by injuries, arthritis, infection and other diseases. Overuse or arthritis causes the joint to wear away. This condition may cause pain, swelling and stiffness. On the other hand, damage and diseases inside a joint can limit the blood flow, and cause problems in the bones.

During the Joint Replacement Surgical procedure, the team will give you medicine to comfort you while the surgery. This medicine may block the pain only one area of the body, or it may put the whole body to sleep. After giving you general anesthesia, the team then replaces the damaged joint with a new man-made joint. Since each surgery is different, time taken in the surgery depends on the condition of the joint and process of the surgery.

Usually, a Hip or Knee Replacement Surgery takes about two or less hours, until there are complicating factors. After the surgery, the patient is moved to a recovery room for one or two hours unless he/she is fully awake or the numbness vanishes.
