When arthritic pain is severe enough that it limits the activities of daily living, your doctor may recommend joint replacement surgery. Joint replacement can provide lasting pain relief and increased mobility. This procedure is fairly common, with more than 1 million Americans having a knee or hip replaced every year.
Before considering joint replacement, it’s important that your doctor conduct a thorough examination to diagnose your condition. Usually, more conservative measures such as exercise, physical therapy and medications should be exhausted before a joint replacement is considered.
