Featured Article- Joint Arthroplasty

people walking, kneesJoint arthroplasty is a surgical procedure done to replace a damaged joint with an artificial one called as prosthesis. In chronic arthritis, deformities most often start occurring at the smaller joints. The knee joint is also commonly affected. This begins as a flexion deformity and gradually results in cartilage damage (cartilage is connective tissue surrounding the joint that reduces friction). When such damages occurs, normal function is rarely regained even with oral medication and exercise. Activities such as rising from a chair, sitting on the floor and climbing stairs become very difficult. Joints can become completely stiff.
