Am I A Candidate ForJoint Replacement

Joint replacement is a surgical procedure in which the worn, damaged surfaces of the joint are removed & replaced with new artificial parts. Your doctor may consider joint replacement if you have severe pain which limits daily activities & is not relieved with medications, injections, physical therapy, or other treatments. The goal of the surgery is to relieve pain and restore the alignment and function of your joint.
