An orthopedic surgeon can help patients make informed decisions regarding whether a knee or hip replacement surgery is suitable for them.
Many suffer from both knee and hip pain and need replacements for both. When in this situation, which one do you replace first? Does it matter? The answer is yes.
Joint Replacement surgery is known as Arthroplasty in medical terminology and applies to any process where the natural joint is replaced with an artificial implant. Joints require replacement when they are not functioning due to wear, disease, or injury.
