Replacing damaged joints
OrthoIndy total joint replacement surgeons specialize in replacing a joint damaged by trauma or arthritis with an artificial joint. It is now possible to replace most joints of the body. OrthoIndy total joint replacement surgeons focus on hip or knee replacement surgeries. However, some specialty physicians also do replacements on damaged joints other than the hip and knee.
When other more conservative methods of treating pain and loss of motion have been proven to be ineffective, joint replacement surgery may represent the best hope for long-term improvement of the joint. Dramatic advances in the procedures and devices used to repair and replace the joints may now bring profound relief to those who suffer from chronic pain and disability.
