For patients undergoing a "traditional" hip replacement, a posterior approach is used to access the diseased hip joint, remove and resurface arthritic bone and implant the replacement joint. A prosthetic joint is specially selected by the surgeon to match the patient's anatomy.
Patients with arthritis in the knee joint experience pain when the smooth cartilage at the ends of the bones is damaged or missing. During knee replacement surgery, the surgeon removes arthritic and damaged bone in the knee joint, resurfaces the remaining bone and implants a replacement knee joint. Prosthetic joints are made of plastic and metal and are specially selected by the surgeon to match the build of a patient's body. Advances in technology now allow some patients to undergo knee replacement surgery who might not have been candidates in the past.
Patients with arthritis in the shoulder joint experience pain when bones in the joint rub together. During shoulder replacement surgery, the surgeon removes arthritic and damaged bone in the shoulder joint, resurfaces the bone and implants a replacement shoulder joint. Prosthetic joints are made of plastic or metal and are specially selected by the surgeon to match the build of a patient's body.
