Knee Replacement
If medications, changing your activity level, and using walking supports are no longer helpful, a person may want to consider resurfacing the damaged and worn surfaces of the knee to relieve pain, correct leg deformity and help resume normal activities. Knee Replacement is a surgical procedure in which those parts of the knee joint affected and destroyed by arthritis are replaced with artificial metal or plastic parts called ‘prostheses'. Total Knee Replacement may be recommended if one suffer from severe arthritis in the knee to alleviate pain and to improve the ability to walk. If an individual's knee is severely damaged by arthritis or injury, it may be hard for them to perform simple activities such as walking or climbing stairs. They may even begin to feel pain while sitting or lying down. There are two different types of knee replacement procedures a doctor may recommend to relieve knee pain, partial knee replacement, also called uni-compartmental replacement, or total knee replacement. Learning the differences can help to you have a better discussion with one's doctor. Total Knee Replacement, or arthroplasty, is the relining of the joint (bone end surfaces) with artificial parts called prostheses. There are three components used in the artificial knee.

Total Hip Replacement
When you have developed arthritis in your hip, the surfaces of the ball-and-socket joint between your thigh bone and pelvis bone are no longer smooth. The bones' surfaces become rough, and the cartilage lining is worn away. As a result, your hip becomes painful and stiff. Hip replacement, or arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure in which the diseased parts of the hip joint are removed and replaced with new, artificial parts. These artificial parts are called the prosthesis. The goals of hip replacement surgery include increasing mobility, improving the function of the hip joint and relieving pain.
