The body’s joints allow it to move freely. Over time, a patient’s joints become damaged or diseased, most often from arthritis, causing the need for replacement. Joint replacement is an orthopedic procedure in which an arthritic or damaged joint is removed and replaced with an orthopedic prosthesis, generally made from materials to allow the artificial joint to move normally. Joint replacement surgeries performed at DOC Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine includes ankle replacement, hip replacement, knee replacement and shoulder replacement.
