When Is Total Joint Replacement Recommended? What happens in the Surgery?
Dr. Pritam Palkar, best Orthopedic Surgeon explains several conditions can cause joint pain and disability and lead patients to consider joint replacement surgery. In many cases, joint pain is caused by damage to the cartilage that lines the ends of the bones (articular cartilage) either from arthritis, a fracture, or another condition. If nonsurgical treatments like medications, physical therapy, and activity modifications do not relieve your pain and disability, your doctor may recommend total joint replacement. Total joint replacement surgery takes a few hours. The procedure is performed in a hospital or outpatient surgery center. During the surgery, the damaged cartilage and bone is removed from your joint and replaced with prosthetic components made of metal, plastic, or ceramic. The prosthesis mimics the shape and movement of a natural joint. For example, in an arthritic hip, the damaged ball (the upper end of the femur) is replaced with a metal ball attached to a metal stem that is fitted into the femur, and a plastic socket is implanted into the pelvis, replacing the damaged socket. Dr. Pritam Palkar, an orthopedic surgeon in Pune, Maharashtra will explain the potential risks and complications of total joint replacement, including those related to the surgery itself and those that can occur over time after your surgery. Most complications can be treated successfully.

What is Osteoarthritis?
Dr. Pritam Palkar, best Orthopedic Surgeon, explains Osteoarthritis as the most common form of arthritis, which can affect any joint in the body. It?s most likely to affect the joints that bear most of our weight, such as the knees and feet. Joints that we use a lot in everyday life, such as the joints of the hand, are also commonly affected. In a healthy joint, a coating of tough but smooth and slippery tissue, called cartilage, covers the surface of the bones and helps the bones to move freely against each other. When a joint develops osteoarthritis, part of the cartilage thins and the surface becomes rougher. This means the joint doesn't move as smoothly as it should.When cartilage becomes worn or damaged, all the tissues within the joint become more active than normal as the body tries to repair the damage. The repair processes may change the structure of the joint, but will often allow the joint to work normally and without any pain and stiffness. Almost all of us will develop osteoarthritis in some of our joints as we get older, though we may not even be aware of it.
