For many, joint pain and loss of joint mobility are viewed as an inevitable part of aging. Often, the damage done to the joint is best addressed by total joint replacement - the implanting of a synthetic joint in place of a painfully arthritic one.
Total joint replacements are surgical procedures generally used to reduce the pain and immobility associated with severe, debilitating osteoarthritis or traumatic injury of the knee or hip. Many of these conditions can limit everyday activities.
Memorial Hermann offers award-winning joint replacement in the Houston area.
