Arthroplasty is a surgical procedure to reconstruct or reshape a damaged or diseased joint. This surgery often involves removalof the damaged joint and the implantation of an artificial joint. Those who are in good health but experience osteoarthritic pain that has not responded to other treatments to the point of interfering with their daily activities can opt for the surgery. The relief of joint pain and better quality of life are the driving factors for patients to receive arthroplasty. Arthroplasty may be used to: - Replace all or part of a joint with a prosthesis. - Reshape the bone and cartilage that make up the joint. Arthroplasty is performed under anesthesia and may last several hours. During the procedure, the joint is fully exposed and the damaged bone and cartilage are cut away or reshaped. Patients typically resume normal activities within 3 months.
