Joint Replacement Surgery in Jaipur



What is it?

Joint replacement surgery removes damaged or diseased parts of a joint and replaces them with new, man-made parts.

Replacing a joint can reduce pain and help you move and feel better. Hips and knees are replaced most often. Other joints that can be replaced include the shoulders, fingers, ankles, and elbows.


If your knee is severely damaged by arthritis or injury, it may be hard for you to perform simple activities, such as walking or climbing stairs. You may even begin to feel pain while you are sitting or lying down.

If nonsurgical treatments like medications and using walking supports are no longer helpful, you may want to consider total knee replacement surgery. Joint replacement surgery is a safe and effective procedure to relieve pain, correct leg deformity, and help you resume normal activities.

Knee replacement surgery was first performed in 1968. Since then, improvements in surgical materials and techniques have greatly increased its effectiveness. Total knee replacements are one of the most successful procedures in all of medicine. According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, more than 600,000 knee replacements are performed each year in the United States.

Whether you have just begun exploring treatment options or have already decided to have total knee replacement surgery, this article will help you understand more about this valuable procedure.


The hip joint is the joint between the thigh bone (Femur) and the hip bone (Pelvis). Its primary function is to support the weight of the body. The hip joint is a very important part which helps in retaining the balance of human body. Medically, this joint is referred to as the acetabulufemoral joint or ball and socket joint. The hip joint is a synovial joint that is formed by the rounded ball shape of a head of the femur and cuplike shape of the hip bone (Pelvis) which is called acetabulum. Both joint surfaces are covered with a strong but lubricating layer of hyaline cartilage. This cartilage permits both the surfaces to slide against one another very easily during the movements. Healthy hip enables the leg to have a wide range of movements and helps in retaining the balance of human body.


In shoulder replacement surgery, the damaged parts of the shoulder are removed and replaced with artificial components, called prosthesis. The shoulder replacement surgery includes replacing the ends of the damaged upper arm bone (humerus) and the shoulder bone (scapula) with artificial surfaces lined with plastic or metal and plastic. Shoulder joint components may be held in place with.


In elbow replacement surgery, the damaged parts of the humerus and ulna bones are replaced with artificial components made up of a metal and plastic hinge with two metal stems. Total Elbow Arthroplasty or Elbow Replacement is a surgery that restores mobility and reduces pain in patients having damaged elbow joints. The damage can be from traumatic injury or from a disease like Rheumatoid Arthritis.


Total ankle replacement (also called ankle arthroplasty) is a surgical option for patients with arthritis of the ankle. This operation can relieve pain and maintain motion in the arthritic ankle joint and is an alternative to arthrodesis (ankle fusion) which can relieve pain but eliminates motion in the joint. Although it does not have the same long-term track record of hip or knee replacement, shorter-term studies on ankle replacement look very promising.

The major complaint by individuals who have arthritis is joint pain. Pain is often constant and may be localized to the joint affected. The pain from arthritis is due to inflammation that occurs around the joint, damage to the joint from disease, daily wear and tear of joint, muscle strains caused by forceful movements against stiff painful joints and fatigue.
