What is Joint Replacement Surgery?

Joint replacement surgery is a surgical procedure where artificial joints are inserted in a patient’s body to relieve chronic joint pain and to improve mobility. Joint replacement surgery is considered when the pain is severe and is not relieved by less-invasive therapies. The prosthesis implanted is specifically designed to replicate the movement of a healthy joint.
