For treating the painful joints, surgery is a wise decision which involves removing of damaged cartilage from the connecting side of the joint, then resurfacing of the joint is done by using prosthesis (artificial) implants made of metal or plastic or both, which work almost as natural joints thus give relief to the patient from severe pain and enabling him to live normal life.
Joint are those parts of the body where two bones meet together for e.g. knee, hip and shoulder and over the period of time due to continuous movement between bones joints may get damaged causing joint pain and difficulty in joint movement. Joint Replacement surgery is performed when the severe joint pain cannot be treated with medication and making the joint movement back to normal.
